Have you ever felt a little under the weather and weren’t really sure why?  Just because you’re not feeling your best doesn’t automatically mean you have a cold.  Exposure to mold and mold spores can mimic cold symptoms, and prolonged exposure can have lasting effects on your health.  So how do you know if it’s mold that is causing your symptoms?

What are the symptoms of mold exposure?

  • Runny nose
  • Red, itchy, or watery eyes
  • Itchy nose or throat
  • Wheezing or cough
  • Sneezing

Most reactions to mold are caused by an allergy to the mold in question.  People with known allergies, asthma, compromised immune systems, or other health concerns can be more sensitive to mold in their environment.  The most common places mold occurs is in bathrooms, basements and kitchens, where water use is most frequent.  However, mold can be found just about anywhere in the home, provided the growing conditions are there.

If you are exhibiting any of the above mentioned symptoms, it is possible you are suffering from a mold allergy.  Call a professional like KADE Restoration to ensure all traces of mold in your home are gone.
