Mold live everywhere, and spores of mold or other fungi are in the air around us more than we think. If you have an allergy that doesn’t end when seasons change, you may be allergic to these airborne mold and fungal spores. The symptoms of mold allergy are similar to the symptoms of other allergies, such as sneezing, congestion, dry skin, and runny nose. The difference is that people with mold allergies experience allergy symptoms year-round.
While most outdoor molds become dormant during the winter, indoor molds can spread and reproduce all year long given the right environment. If you are constantly sneezing and sniffling inside your home, contact a mold remediation company in Baltimore to inspect your home for mold. If you see areas of mold growth, leave it to the professionals. Mold removal can be dangerous, especially if certain types of toxic mold are growing in your home. You may also need to hire a basement waterproofing company to prevent further mold growth.
