The Worst Airborne Allergies May Be Right in Your Home

Posted in Blog on August 24th, 2016 by Ian Stevens

This past allergy season has been one of the worst. Waves of pollen have sent suffers into sneezing fits, unable to enjoy the nice weather. However, the outside conditions are not the only problem for allergy suffers.  Indoor conditions can be just as bad and according to experts, it is one of the top 5 environmental risks.

The biggest indoor air quality pollutant is mold and it can affect sufferers in the following ways:

  • Skin irritation
  • Wheezing
  • Eye irritation
  • Nasal stuffiness
  • Chronic respiratory diseases such as asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder can form in more serious cases

Not all molds in the home are hazardous, so how can you tell the difference? The key is to carry out a simple mold test that’s accurate and straightforward to implement. This test will identify the hazardous molds in your home and it should only take 5 minutes to complete.

Avoiding these types of problems is a matter of controlling the levels of moisture in your home – below 50% moisture level is desirable. The severity of the mold in the home determines if you can clean it using home cleaning products, or if you need to call in the professionals and at MDMoldTesting.com, we’re happy to help.
