Spring is here, and for many, that means experiencing allergies related to mold. If your home has excess moisture in the walls, floors, attic or basement, then you may be at risk for mold growth. The presence of mold in the home can often cause various symptoms that may present themselves as allergies but can lead to more severe health issues. Here are a few symptoms to look out for:

Upper respiratory issues

Runny nose

Itchy, watery eyes

Chronic cough

Headaches

Fatigue

Sneezing

It is important to be aware of these symptoms and to reach out to a professional if they do not subside. American Restoration can help keep your Spring allergies at bay by removing the excess moisture in your home. Mold spreads quickly in damp, warm environments and can include toxic spores such as Penicillium and Aspergillus. Other spores like Alternaria and Cladosporium are carried inside your home and into your HVAC system. If you allow the spread of these spores, your home and health will suffer. In fact, people with asthma or underlying health conditions are at a greater risk of illness caused by poor indoor air quality.

It’s common for homeowners not to recognize the signs of excess moisture in their homes, as it can be harder to detect than one may think. Common signs are:

Peeling paint

Decayed wood

Condensation on windows

Dark spots on carpets

Pest infestations

Soft spots on walls or floors
