Are you one of the 40 million of people suffering from allergies? As seasons start to change you will notice flowering trees start to bud and flowers bloom. With the increase of pollen in the air we know this can increase your chance for allergies to flourish. One other reason for these allergy type symptoms is mildew or mold. Many are not aware that mold can be a serious health problem and can have similar symptoms.
We hear horror stories all the time that I have a runny nose, trouble breathing, headaches or loss of hair. Often after many test, medications and costly medical procedures someone will say have you ever had your house tested for mold.
For many this is the first sign of hope that this nightmare of symptoms may be controlled. The first step in the process is to have your home tested for mold. Testing for mold involves taking various air samples taken and sent to a certified lab for explanation. Once the lab results are complete you can determine if you have toxic mold which may be contributing to your symptoms. Mold can be removed and your home treated successfully thus restoring your indoor air quality to acceptable levels and improving your allergy like symptoms.
Mold test andmold remediation should be done by a certified professional team. This is not something that you should try to do yourself. The longer you wait to identify and treat the more it can impact your family’s health and cost to have the repairs done.
