Could Your House Be Making You Sick?


Sep 22, 2022

Most people are aware of whether they have seasonal allergies. Many people with seasonal allergies such as grass allergy or tree pollen have a good idea of how to reduce, eliminate, or avoid triggers. This could be done by maintaining trees or hiring a landscape crew to take care of their yard. Many people with allergies know how to manage their symptoms and reduce their suffering. What many people don’t know is that allergies can also be affected by the indoor environment in their homes.

You may have experienced the discomfort of a roof leak, rain coming in through your fireplace or chimney, and the moisture that remains in your walls and attic insulation can cause severe allergies. This is especially true if mold spores are present in the humid, moist, dark, and humid environment in your attic, walls, and fireplace. This is because most people don’t realize that they have allergies or are allergic to harmful spores until they feel them. By then it may be quite difficult to get rid of the problem.

Mold or mildew can grow in your walls and attic. You may not be able to understand why you are sneezing so much, why your eyes are itchy, why your nose is itchy, and even why your cough is worse. It is important to address mold growth and moisture damage if you have a leaky roof or water leaking into your fireplace. Even if there are no allergies in the household, mold can still cause problems.
