Got Mold Allergies? Get Relief With EnviroKlenz Products!
It is estimated that ~70 percent of homes have mold behind the walls, which can be contributing to the health problems of those who live there.The most common heath effects of mold are mold allergies which—while not life-threatening—can be very uncomfortable.
According to the Mayo Clinic, a mold allergy results when your immune system overreacts to mold that you have inhaled into your lungs. A runny nose, watery and itchy eyes, coughing, wheezing, and rashes are the most common symptoms, but it can also lead to asthma, restricted breathing, and other airway problems.
Mold Allergy Symptoms
These allergy symptoms can be controlled by over-the-counter drugs and various natural remedies, but it’s generally agreed that the best way to prevent and relieve mold allergy symptoms is to control the mold in your home.
Controlling mold begins with controlling moisture. While moisture is particularly obvious in bathrooms and kitchens, the mold that commonly causes allergies is generally in places where you can’t see it. It’s not the mold growing on a windowsill, but instead the mold growing behind your walls because the pipes behind the shower tile are leaking and you can’t see it.
Removing Mold Odors from your home
Mold often has a characteristic musty smell, which is actually volatile organic chemicals (VOCs) produced by molds. Many different indoor molds produce VOCs—including Aspergillus and Penicillium. A copious variety of VOCs may be produced by these and other molds, depending upon the species of mold, the conditions under which it is growing, and the substrate on which it is growing.
These VOCs produced by molds can be even more harmful to health than common allergies, as they can damage the olfactory system that produces our sense of smell, and even be transported into the temporal lobe of the brain via the olfactory bulb. Some mold-produced VOCs are known to be toxic to the nervous system or to cause inflammation in the lungs. Quite simply, the Centers for Disease control says, “If mold is seen or smelled, there is a potential health risk…”
The quickest way to remove mold odors and the VOCs produced by mold from the air in your home is with the right air purifier. This gives you time to remove moldy materials from your home and fix the conditions which created the mold. And you should continue to purify the air afterward, as the air inside your home will contain VOCs generated by the mold during the course of its growth. You may need to continue to purify the air in your home for an extended period of time, to allow any VOCs absorbed into the interior surfaces to be released.
