Mold Exposure: Symptoms, Treatment and, Remediation.

Mold, an invisible intruder lurking in our homes, thrives stealthily in the shadows of our daily lives. By 2023, it is a major cause for concern in many states, such as Kansas, New York, New Jersey, Rhode Island, and Kentucky. These states, besieged by an army of spores, face a silent battle against this relentless foe.

In the United States, Kansas has the highest mold score at 68, followed by New York at 63 and New Jersey at 61. This is concerning. These figures, more than mere numbers, paint a stark picture of a hidden adversary.

The health impacts of mold exposure are as insidious as they are varied. Did you know that 21% of asthma cases in the US are caused by dampness and mold? This information comes from the World Health Organization.

Victims often find themselves grappling with respiratory symptoms that range from a mere cough to debilitating wheezing. Mold doesn’t stop there; its reach extends to skin irritation and even to the realms of fatigue and cognitive impairment.

Some people argue that they overstate the dangers of mold, considering it a mere nuisance rather than a threat. However, this underestimation ignores the mycotoxins—mold’s toxic emissaries—that can trigger allergic reactions and potentially increase cancer risk. Identifying signs such as coughs, stuffy nose, and headaches is not just about treatment. Also, about acknowledging the hidden battle against mold.

Addressing poisoning by mold exposure effectively requires recognizing its common symptoms, which include coughing, nasal congestion, headaches, and digestive discomfort. Early identification of these symptoms is crucial for timely treatment. Mold makes toxins that can cause allergies and possibly raise the chance of developing health risks such as cancer. Treatment usually includes improving air ventilation, and removing mold by licensed mold removing companies.

To prevent mold, create indoor conditions that discourage its growth. This is particularly important in humid areas and during rainy seasons. Below, are some essential preventive measures:

  1. Control indoor humidity levels to prevent mold growth, aim to control indoor humidity between 30% to 50%. In humid areas, the strategic use of dehumidifiers and HVAC systems is effective in regulating excessive moisture levels. Keeping bathrooms, basements, and kitchens dry prevents mold growth.
  2. Improve airflow by opening windows, using fans in kitchens and bathrooms, and maintaining clean ventilation and A/C systems.
  3. Prompt Leak Repairs: Address leaks in roofs, walls, or plumbing quickly to prevent moisture buildup and mold formation in walls, ceilings and floors.
  4. Regular Cleaning and Inspection: Frequently clean high-humidity areas like bathrooms and kitchens to deter mold growth.
  5. Use mold-resistant paints, drywall, and building materials in areas with moisture to prevent mold growth in your home.
  6. Proper Storage Practices: Store items in dry, well-ventilated spaces and avoid damp areas like basements and garages unless those spaces are protected by Airfree
  7. Incorporating the TSS Technology from Airfree Air Purifiers: Airfree air purifiers incorporate the Thermodynamic Sterilizing System (TSS). This technology employs 400 °F/ 200ºC heat inside its ceramic core mini ducts to destroy, not just hold, mold and its micro toxins, mold spores to avoid new mold colonies formation, as well as bacteria, viruses, fungi and yet, with no heat transfer to the room. The multiple heated vertical mini ducts, constantly release sterilized air up, and draw in contaminated air like chimney, a fan less natural phenomenon known as air convection. Airfree air purifiers have no filters and require maintenance.  Its sterilizing efficiency will last for many years continuously destroying airborne mold spores and other germs.
  8. The silent home guardian: imagine having a mold and germs free home. That is what Airfree proposes, to be the silent guardian, quietly and efficiently destroying mold and germs. Once plugged in, there is nothing else to do for many years to come other than benefiting of a healthy home.
  9. Polluted regions and cities: for this areas Airfree offers the Hybrid models. The TSS mode always on, will maintain the mold and germs free home. In addition, the Hybrid models incorporate an exclusive capsule system to be switched on up to 2 hours a day, to capture the infiltrated outdoor pollution.
  10. Airfree air purifiers the healthy, economic and friendly with the environment option: No dirty filters to handle or crowd landfills, 100% noiseless on classic models
  11. Airfree the most efficient: The best HEPA air filters in the market claim capturing particles over 0.3 microns, that might have germs or not, through a dense multiple layer filter. Airfree air purifiers silently destroy rather than hold, any microorganism smaller than 0.1 microns. No HEPA filter can hold such small particles
