Allergy sufferers that have symptoms year round could possibly be reacting to mold in their homes. If your allergies tend to escalate during the winter months, there’s a higher chance you could have mold in your home. Several homeowners have kept their mold problem at bay with a whole house dehumidifier. Whether it’s winter or summer, you’ll want to keep your dehumidifier on to control the air quality in your home. In this blog I’m going to talk about some health problems that may be cause by a mold issue.
According to WebMD, people with a mold allergy suffer from allergy symptoms year round, even in the winter. Symptoms include:
- Stuffy nose
- Irritated eyes
Having a mold problem in the home of someone with a mold allergy can be a life changer. Imagine going through life constantly feeling like you have a cold. The problem may escalate in the winter months when the mold is caused by water damage within the home. This is because indoor heat within the house will pull air from the water-damaged area and expel it back into the living space. If you or someone in your household is experiencing some or all of the symptoms listed above year round, you may want to contact a professional to test the moisture in your home. If mold is found, an environmental service will need to be called in to remove the problem. After mold has been cleared out of your home is when Practical Systems can help.
