Don’t Catch What Ails Your House

“But as my experience demonstrated, you don’t need a flood to develop a mold problem. It can happen anywhere moisture is present — a hidden leak, for example, or condensation around windows or pipes. You may not even be aware of the problem, only the distress it causes.

Typical symptoms resemble those of an allergy like hay fever: arunny nose, sneezing, red or itchy eyes, throat irritation and coughing. Some people develop a skin rash; those with asthmamay have an attack. According to research by the Mayo Clinic, an immunological response to mold may cause most cases of chronic sinusitis.

Mold can even infect the central nervous system, often fatally, as occurred in a 2012 outbreak of meningitis from epidural injections contaminated by Exserohilum rostratum. Of the 751 people infected across the country, 64 died.”  More.
