Winter Mold Growth Increases Allergens in Sioux City Homes

January 24th, 2015 · No Comments

January has been dubbed as “Staying Healthy Month.” This translates into a lot of New Year’s resolutions: losing weight, exercising more, eating better, or relaxing more often. Many of us don’t think about the necessity of making sure our homes are contributing to our health, and not encroaching on it with allergens.

Mold is a common allergen growing in many houses. As frost settles inside your walls and windows, then melts, it creates prime breeding grounds for mold. Mold removal from professionals like ServiceMaster of Sooland can help you keep your New Year’s Resolution to get healthy by providing you with a healthy environment to live in.

According to The Mayo Clinic, “A mold allergy can make you cough, make your eyes itch and cause other symptoms that make you miserable. In some people, mold allergy is linked to asthma and exposure causes restricted breathing and other airway symptoms.”  Restricted breathing and asthma are not beneficial when it comes to exercising and more energy in the new year. If you’re exercising in your home, and mold is polluting your air, it could cause asthmatic symptoms while you’re trying to live a healthier life. There are a few simple tips to keep mold at bay in your home:

1) Get rid of dampness in your basement with a dehumidifier.

2) Check the corners of your basement for standing water, or any dampness.

3) If your drywall smells strange, check it for mold.
