Mold and the Allergy Connection
Allergies are a regular part of life, and millions of people suffer from them. In most cases, pollen is the main allergen, with symptoms including sneezing, itchy eyes, and others.
The Mold Connection
The interesting part of this scenario is that, if you or your kids are allergic to mold spores, the same symptoms will occur. Especially during the spring and summer, a mold allergy may be mistaken for a common allergy, and if your son or daughter also suffers from asthma, it could become a very serious health issue.
Mold Allergy Clues
If you or your children are prone to seasonal allergies, check to see if they become worse or flare up in different places. Go into other parts of the home, like laundry rooms, bathrooms and basements and monitor the reactions. If there is no difference in any room than being outside, then the chances are that you don’t have a mold problem.
If, however, allergic reactions become worse in these areas, it would be in your best interest to search for hidden mold, and there are several mold removal tips you can use if you find mold growing, or call in a professional.
