Allergies plaque millions of Americans each year, but do you know the differences between allergies and mold illnesses? Most people do not know the difference, and mold could be causing all their illnesses. Disaster Cleanup Services wants you to be healthy, so we have compiled a list of symptoms caused by mold and the steps you need to take for mold remediation.

Mold is naturally occurring and can grow indoors and outdoors; it becomes a problem when it grows inside your home. Mold symptoms mimic those of severe seasonal allergies, but there are ways to determine if your illness is from mold or just allergies. Mold problems in your home should be checked as soon as possible, as mold can continue to grow and wreak havoc on your home and your health. Allergies and mold have a lot of similar illnesses, including:
• Nasal Congestion
• Watery Eyes
• Coughing
• Itchy Eyes
• Runny Nose
• Earaches
• Sneezing
• Sore Throat
• Wheezing

As you can see, they have a lot of similar symptoms. If your allergies occur all year long, it is more likely that you have a mold infestation inside your home. If your symptoms clear up after being away from your home, you could have mold. The best way to find out is to have your home tested by a mold removal professional. They will be able to determine if you do have mold and the best way to go about having it removed. You should also see your doctor to determine what is causing your symptoms.

Mold loves to grow in dark and damp spaces, making it hard to know if you have mold. If you see mold stains on your ceiling, then you already have mold growth and will need to have mold remediation completed. A certified mold removal specialist will be able to safely remove all the mold from your property and determine the cause of the mold growth.
