Mold comes with a high cost to our health as well as our pocketbooks. It causes extensive damage to walls and flooring and it can make us quite sick if left undetected. Many of us know that mold can make you sick, but you might be unaware of the symptoms. These are 3 ways that mold makes you ill and how BetterAir can help.
- Allergy-Like Symptoms
It’s easy to confuse allergies with mold illness, especially since they bring symptoms that you’d experience from things such as pollen or dust mites.
With mold, you might experience:
- Stuffed or runny nose
- Itchy or watery eyes
- Dry cough
- Sore throat
- Skin rashes
Since many of these symptoms are respiratory, some other more serious symptoms can follow.
- Worsening Asthma Conditions
Asthma and mold is a bad combination. You can experience worsening asthmatic symptoms with mold in your home such as shortness of breath and wheezing.
Other pre-existing lung conditions will also likely become worse with mold.
- Attacking Weak Immune Systems
Lastly, those who are most susceptible to mold are children, the elderly, and those with weak immune systems. If someone in your home is being treated for cancer or has uncontrolled HIV, they are at risk of fungal infections.
How BetterAir Can Help With Mold
The best approach to ridding mold from your home is by way of prevention. Mold thrives in dark and damp environments, but sometimes these environments go undetected.
The good news is that BetterAir is working 24/7 to battle against undetected mold spores that might make your family sick. Mold spores are somewhat like seeds as they are used for reproduction purposes by mold. They are invisible to the naked eye and you can’t tell if they are in the air without the assistance of a laboratory analysis. This means you might be breathing in mold spores without knowing it.
BetterAir releases a constant stream of probiotics into the air. These probiotics consume bad bacteria, including mold spores, that can eventually mature and turn into a mold infestation. However, the most important part is that they reduce mold spores so you don’t experience symptoms such as a runny nose or dry cough.
By preventing mold spores, you’ll be much less likely to experience the nagging (and sometimes dangerous) symptoms that come along with it.
