Mold is one of the most common triggers of asthma and allergic reactions. The invisible particles will get into your airways, and cause a severe reaction. If you are an asthma sufferer, you need to make sure that your Tampa, Florida, home is regularly cleaned and the mold is removed. Ventilation helps, but sometimes you need a professional to solve the issue.
Allergy and Mold
When your indoor air is damp, or you suffered water damage or flooding, you might have invisible mold. The most common places for mold to occur are your bathroom and your kitchen, especially your fridge. Mold and mildew are a type of fungi, and spread spores that are invisible in the air, but can eventually get in your airways and causing irritation.
Asthma Attacks Become More Frequent and More Severe
If you already have asthma, and you live in a damp house with mold, your symptoms will become more severe. You will wake up sneezing and will suffer from hay fever-like symptoms most of the day. Even if you cannot see mold, you need to get in touch with a Hillsborough mold removal company to complete an assessment and professional inspection. You might need to get industrial dehumidification or air cleansing carried out in your home to remove the allergens.
Asthma and Allergy Complications Related to Mold
If you spend a long time in a house that is affected by mold, your asthma and allergy symptoms will gradually become worse. Even if you have a HEPA filter vacuum and air conditioner, make sure you contact a mold removal specialist. They will find the source of the fungi and spores, professionally clear the area, and improve the air quality of your home, getting rid of residue in your ducts, carpets, and restorable items.
