Do you never stop sneezing? This may not be a cold – you may be allergic to mold spores. There are many types of mold. Mold spores aren’t visible to us, they can grow in areas where they cannot be seen, like behind walls or in a basement. They float in the air both outdoors and indoors. Allergenic molds include Alternaria, Aspergillus, Cladosporium, and penicillium.If you are allergic to molds, your immune system overreacts when you inhale spores which may get into the nose and cause hay fever symptoms such as sneezing
what is sneezing?
Sneezing, or so-called sternutation is how the body eliminates irritants from the nose or throat and is an involuntary ejection from the air. This happens frequently suddenly and without warning. While sneezing can be quite disturbing, it does not necessarily indicate a severe state of health.
How do you know whether you are breathing excessive air mold spores into your home?
Are there any particularly unpleasant smells in the cellar? Are there signs of mold in bathrooms, window sills, books, shoes, or walls? Are there waterholes on the ceiling or the walls? Do you have peeling paint? Are the wooden floors warping? If so, you probably have mold in the air in your house and should seriously consider air testing and remember that all houses have a certain amount of mold spores floating in the air and this is normal. The problem is that there are too many mold spores due to the active growth mold in your home.
How can you tell if the air in your house contains hazardous levels of mold spores?
