Got the sniffles? Are you constantly sneezing? Are your eyes burning, watering or itchy? Have you been coughing or had throat irritation? You should never just assume that pollen is the reason your allergies are suddenly acting up. Much like pollen, outdoor mold spores begin to increase as temperatures begin to rise in the Spring. But what happens when those outdoor mold spores enter your home and find a moisture source? They start growing inside your home and setting off your allergies. You may need to have your house and duct work checked for mold.
Mold spores float through the air, much like pollen and get into your nose and cause similar symptoms as hay fever. Most people just assume that they have common allergies. You may have allergies, but the allergy isn’t necessarily pollen. Allergies are most commonly caused by pollen and mold both which set off a chain reaction in your immune system.
If you have hidden mold in your home and you are treating your symptoms with Benadryl, or some over the counter antihistamine, if may be all for naught. Allergies are common, but that doesn’t mean that you only need to treat your body’s symptoms. Sometimes it’s your home that needs treated.
