Allergies from Mould?

Mould allergies can make you feel miserable. Mould will grow in moist areas and can trigger reactions depending on the type and length of time you are exposed. Mould lives indoors and outdoors, but most often indoor mould lurking in your home or business can cause potential health problems.

Mould thrives in damp and warm environments. Mould can be found in places such as shower stalls, under kitchen sinks, behind refrigerators, dish washers, washing machines. Damp basements, leaky roofs, cracked house siding. Mould can also grow on window frames, baseboards, carpets or even the carpet under lay. Anywhere there is moisture, there is potential for mould.

Normally the first sign of a mould issue is the odour. You will detect a “mustyodour. Some types of mould are known as “mildew”. If you have a mould allergy and inhale mould spores, you will likely experience allergic symptoms.
