There are over 40,000 different types of mold, but only a small percentage of those cause allergic symptoms. Unfortunately, those molds are typically the ones people find inside their homes. Mold spores can cause nose and lung allergies, with symptoms ranging from runny nose and congestion to coughing, shortness of breath, and respiratory infection. Watch this video to hear from Dr. Bob Overholt on behalf of the Allergy, Asthma & Sinus Center (AASC) to learn more about mold allergies and managing the symptoms of mold allergies.
If you’re suffering from severe indoor allergies, schedule a mold inspection with an EPA-certified mold remediation provider in The Hamptons . If mold is discovered in your home, having it removed by a professional will save you time and money versus DIY mold removal. Professional mold remediation will also spare you a severe allergy or asthma attack if you are sensitive to mold.
