Can Mold Induced Asthma Be Cured? Find Out What Helps Asthma
Mold in your home can act like a domino effect, as mold grows it leads to the release of mold spores into your environment, thus a spiraling of potential health conditions follow after, such as allergies, asthma, and other debilitating illnesses. Mold growing in your home releases off mold spores after the infected area drys or if the area is disturbed, releasing a vast amount of tiny mold spores into the environment and into your air. Mold spores are tiny structures produced by mold for reproduction so the mold can then grow in other areas of your home. These tiny spores can become a detriment to your health when entering into your airways and can begin to exacerbate symptoms of asthma. Is there any way to cure mold induced asthma? Simply put yes, by removing the mold from your personal environment you can help to reduce mold-induced asthma symptoms.
Is Asthma a Disease Caused by Mold?
A study conducted titled, “Mold Allergens in Respiratory Allergy: From Structure to Therapy”, (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25840710) showed significant evidence from several epidemiological studies that show the important role that mold and fungi play in respiratory diseases such as allergies and asthma. Also, to follow this study they found that exposure to mold was found more prevalently in patients with asthma, and is a factor for the overall development of asthma. Certain molds can specifically trigger asthma and allergy symptoms, because of the production of toxins from these molds called Mycotoxins. Mycotoxins are chemicals that cause cells in the body to break down, making them a threat to whoever is exposed to this toxin. To fully becoming tainted by this toxin you would have to either touch, breathe-in or swallow the mold to be affected by the toxins.
Inhaling Mold Spores Exacerbates Asthma Symptoms
Mold spores, with their size, can lead to compromised air passageways as the spores make their way into your airways. If you have a mold allergy or mold-induced asthma, your symptoms may be triggered by exposure to mold spores in your environment. Some people when exposed to certain molds can begin to experience severe asthma attacks as a result of the mold in their environment. When the mold releases the spores into the air, it will cause allergic reaction symptoms to those with sensitivities, allergies or those with a compromised immune system.
Sign of Asthma Induced by Mold
Signs of asthma induced mold can be hard to determine. The symptoms presented can act similarly to your average-everyday allergy ones, however, if these symptoms persist you may conclude it to be mold-induced asthma. Symptoms can include:
A runny nose
How to Prevent Asthma When Exposed to Different Types of Mold
When you are exposed to mold in your home it can affect not only the quality of your air but also compromise your overall health. Asthma can be induced by mold as mold spores are released into the air impacting air passageways and leading to asthma-like symptoms. When you start to have asthma flare-ups or experience severe allergy/asthma symptoms you may become aware that mold growth in your home could be the allergen eliciting these symptoms. The types of household mold that are typically found indoors, growing in homes include Aspergillus, Penicillium, Alternaria, Cladosporium, and Stachybotrys. When you are working to prevent your asthma when exposed to these types of different mold you can implement the same universal strategy. First, you will want to locate the source of the mold. Mold can be found growing in areas where there are a lot of moisture and on surfaces in general.
As you locate the source of the mold, the next step will be to contain the mold so it will not spread throughout your home. Containing the mold will also help when you have a mold remediation specialist come out to remove the mold growth in your home. Many people will think that after you have a mold remediation specialist come remove the mold that is in your home that your home will be completely mold free, however, think again. Remember those tiny mold spores that get released from the growing mold? Well, those tiny mold spores after being disturbed by the mold remediation specialist will float into the air and taint your home’s air quality. What do you do when mold spores are infesting your home’s air and causing you health problems? The best preventive measure to use to mitigate mold spores from your air is by using a UV air purifier. The EnviroKlenz Mobile UV System is designed with ultraviolet germicidal radiation (UVC lights) that contains the ability to kill microorganisms such as viruses, bacteria and mold spores that are collected on the HEPA. This system uses a two-stage filtration process that contains a patented earth mineral air cartridge and a hospital-grade HEPA.
Using both the two-stage filtration to remove a broad spectrum of chemicals and odors and removing particles up to 0.3 microns in size, as well as killing microorganisms such as mold spores makes this air purification system essential in your home for preventing asthma from mold.

“After searching for a unit to meet these specifications, I recently tried EnviroKlenz’s Mobile Air Purifier System. This air purifier is designed specifically for those who are very sensitive, with multiple chemical sensitivities, allergies, and other health issues, making it a good solution for those who truly want to clean up their air.
I have had great results with these products as well and tolerate them even with my extensive allergies and sensitivities. I hope to share more about this technology and these non-toxic options in upcoming blog posts!”

I absolutely LOVE my Enviroklenz air purifier. I live in Los Angeles with very poor air quality. In my home I now have peace of mind that my indoor air quality is safe and relish coming home after breathing in toxic air when I’m out. Detox is the top priority in my home and my air purifier helps me to meet my health goals by preventing toxins from entering my body via the air.
Thank you Enviroklenz!

“Indoor air pollution is a major health problem today. There are often more harmful pollutants inside a home than outside—even in smoggy cities like Los Angeles.
EnviroKlenz products offer a quick, easy, effective solution to modern indoor air pollution. These products not only remove pollutants and odors from the air, they destroy chemical pollutants completely by breaking apart their molecular structure.
EnviroKlenz products can be lifesavers for anyone who needs or wants to live in a home free from toxic chemical exposures. They destroy a broad spectrum of toxic chemicals, including fragrance, tobacco smoke, and pesticides.
I have conducted an independent review of the materials used to make EnviroKlenz products, and found them to meet my standards to be considered toxic free. Not only are the products themselves toxic free, they can make your home more toxic free as well.
