Mold Allergies are Nothing to Sneeze At – How They Might Be Affecting You

Do you find yourself sneezing shortly after visiting your basement? If that sneezing is accompanied by other symptoms, like itching, having a runny nose, congestion and dry, scaling skin, then it’s likely you have an allergy to mold – and potentially, a problem with excess moisture in your cellar. According to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA), indoor molds can cause a person to have allergy symptoms all year long, unlike outdoor molds, which more often contribute to seasonal allergies.

The AAFA says that mold spores enter your nose, where they cause rhinitis, or inflammation of the nose. When your nose is inflamed, it produces more mucus and is often itchy and stuffy. You’ll likely experience sneezing and coughing as well. When mold spores reach the lungs, they can trigger asthma. Some people have a reaction right away to mold spores, and others have delayed symptoms, like congestion or increasing asthma conditions. If your symptoms get worse when you’re in your basement, you probably have a mold problem.

New York is a wet state, and there are moldy basements from Albany to Syracuse to Utica, and everywhere else in between! The unfortunate thing is, a wet basement provides the perfect breeding ground for a number of unpleasant pathogens, like mildew, bacteria and of course, mold. If you don’t effectively remove the moisture from your basement – and get to the root cause of the moisture problems – mold growth will continue to be a concern. That’s why it’s important that you choose a basement waterproofing company that not only removes the mold from your basement, but also solves the problem of basement wetness.
