Signs of Mold Allergy

An allergy is something that many people throughout the world will experience once in their life and for others it will be something that they constantly battle. From a mold allergy to a dust mite allergy, there are many different airborne allergens that can affect your health and trigger an allergic reaction or allergy-symptoms. There are as many as 50 million people, about one-in-five, that have allergies and have to deal with potentially persisting symptoms within their personal indoor environment.

A mold allergy is something that people tend to experience when they are inside their home that is unbeknownst to them, producing and growing mold in this indoor space. If you have a mold allergy your immune system will go through a process of overreacting when you inhale mold spores in the air, and this will trigger allergy symptoms like coughing, sneezing, and itchy eyes.

We are going to discuss the different symptoms that will occur if you have an allergy to mold and the mold spores they produce and learn how you can treat a mold allergy in your home.

Mold Spore Allergy

Mold Spore AllergyWhen mold develops within an indoor environment it will grow on surfaces and produce spores into the air as a form of reproduction. These spores that are produced from the mold are small, microscopic pollutants in the air that can easily enter into the human body through the nose and throat leading to hay fever symptoms, or allergies and even lead to asthma issues. The symptoms of a mold spore allergy are very similar to the symptoms that you experience with other allergies – symptoms will include sneezing, itching, runny nose, congestion, and dry skin.

Mold spores can be very hazardous as it can enter into the human body and reach the deepest parts of the lungs and ultimately can than enter into the bloodstream – this will be very dangerous to human health.

Mold Allergy Treatment

If you suffer from a mold allergy the best treatment for this allergy is to avoid potential sources of this allergen inside your personal indoor environments. Mold can usually be identified by its colorful appearance on your wall – usually black, gray, green, and red. Also, mold will carry with it a distinct odor that can permeate throughout the whole environment, if you begin to smell that musty smell that we associate with mold than this could be an indicator of mold in your home. However, if you start to feel progressing allergy symptoms when inside your home this will be a very strong indicator that an allergen is present in the environment and that you must search for the potential source within this space.

When mold is found growing in your home, it is important to have it treated and removed by a professional mold remediation specialist that will properly remove the mold from the surface of your home. Although this will help to remove the mold from the surfaces of your home, there will still be airborne mold spores traveling throughout the air that can elicit your mold allergies and entice your symptoms.
