Mold for All Seasons

Cold weather mold?

Watch out for it. Let’s say you’re huddled around the heater–all that hot dry air. It may be causing your asthma to flare up. Along with that warm air circulating, without filtration, you may be breathing in dust, spores, and other asthma triggers. Also, the abrupt change of temperature, going from warm air to cold air, or the reverse–can also trigger asthma. Bear in mind keeping in all that warmth in air tight houses also keeps in the dust and mold spores. Indoor air quality may lessen as the winter passes, chiefly again because of air tight homes. In fact, the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers is aware that sustainability and energy security together will mean higher levels of insulation; and higher levels of insulation mean lower drying potentials, creating more of a mold risk, which will of course, be hanging around in winter, just waiting to irritate your asthma.

If you’re in California, you might want to give us a call and see about getting an assessment from Byebyemold.
