Is mold affecting you? If so, how much is mold affecting you? Mold, it is so sneaky, and its effects are different depending on the situation and who is involved. You cannot always avoid mold, which can be difficult if you are allergic to it. The reason why mold is so difficult to avoid is because mold spores are in the air and you cannot see them. Furthermore, you could be unaware that you are consuming mold through food because it starts spreading before it is even visible- which is another reason why mold is sneaky. Mold reactivity can easily be mistaken for the common cold since the common symptoms of mold are very similar to respiratory issues.
Because moisture is required for mold to grow, you can prevent mold from spreading in your home by doing some simple things. For instance, if you have a water leak, have it repaired and dry up any water that will allow the mold to continue growing. Keep the shower, sink and toilet areas clean to avoid mold and mildew build up. Rake up leaves and discard them because wet leaves are a breeding ground for mold. Mold likes to grow in dark and damp places like basements and attics, so make sure those places are dry too! For bigger mold problems you may have to call in a mold specialist, to eliminate the mold professionally. Mold can be severe for someone who has allergies or a weakened immune system.
Some symptoms that mold can cause are:
• Itchy eyes, nose, and throat
