Outdoor molds like Cladosporium and Alternaria release spores into the air that are carried by the wind, and can often infiltrate homes, stores, and offices. Indoor molds like Penicillium and Aspergillus thrive indoors and can also cause typical allergy symptoms. Indoor mold has been linked to a variety of health issues including lung irritation and even acute respiratory illnesses.
Defend yourself against spring allergy symptoms that result from exposure to mold. Keeping your doors and windows shut and using allergy filters for your air conditioning unit can help keep outdoor mold spores from entering your home. For indoor mold, call American Restoration Fire and Water for mold removal and abatement services. Of course, if your symptoms are serious, consult your doctor or allergist to discuss treatment options beyond protecting yourself from mold.Copyright: antonioguillem / 123RF Stock Photo
