Dangers of Mold Exposure

71800

 

Mold can be found indoors and outdoors and are present year round – there are so many species of fungi that exist that no one truly knows how many types there are.  Mold grows best in warm, damp and humid conditions and spread/reproduce by making spores.  Some people  are sensitive to molds.  People who are exposed can experience symptoms such as eye and skin irritation, wheezing, and nasal stuffiness. Then there are some people with serious allergies to mold and have more severe reactions that can include fever and shortness of breath.  People with lung illnesses can also develop mold infections in their lungs.

Indoor molds are found where humidity levels are high like a basement or your shower and bathroom. Mold can also be found at your place of employment without you even knowing it is there until you experience symptoms. Other less commonly thought places with high mold exposures are – greenhouses, saunas, farms, mills, summer cottage/homes, antique shops, florists and even in libraries.

The best ways to decrease mold exposure is to avoid areas that are likely to have mold.  This isn’t easy when it comes to being in your home!  If there is mold growth in your home you should clean it by using soap and water, or a bleach solution of no more than a cup of laundry bleach with one gallon of water.  You can also purchase commercial products and use as suggested.  Once cleaned you can slow the growth of mold mycontrolling humidity levels and properly venting your bathroom/shower and kitchen cooking areas.

Dust Mite Allergy Symptoms  

alergia

People with a dust allergy often sneeze, but sneezing isn’t the only symptom.  Dust allergies can also affect people by causing a stuffy or runny nose and can also cause itchy eyes and make them red and/or water.   Dust allergies make it difficult to breath which can trigger wheezing, coughing, tightness in the chest and also shortness of breath.  There are some instances that dust can make people very itchy.  Dust allergy sufferers suffer the most when they are inside their own home and/or other people’s homes.  You would think that frequent cleaning and vacuuming your home would help – however that isn’t always true as cleaning stirs up dust particles making them easier to breath in.

Those who suffer from dust allergies can help within their own home by:

  • Keeping pets out of your bedroom
  • Use cases on your mattresses and pillows that offer mite-proof protection
  • Wash your linens and towels in hot water and wash them frequently
  • Remove carpets – especially in the bedroom
  • Install an Airfree Air Purifier

AirFree is an air purifier that sterilizes the air without the use of a filter and allows air to flow in and out while safely and effectively eliminating airborne allergens like pollen, dust mites and mold.   Airfree is the MOST TESTED purifier on the market.  Airfree takes in our indoor air and uses high heat to destroy all airborne particles, allergens, mold spores and microbiological antigens and returns it to the environment, providing you with clean, sterile air.
