As the rain starts to pour down (we’re looking at you April showers!), the additional moisture in the air can mean mold and mildew in your home. Mold and mildew, both terms commonly used to describe fungi that grows on various surfaces, are not only unsightly but also unhealthy. And because these microorganism love to feed and grow wherever moisture is a mainstay, it’s up to your to make the fuzzy, colorful spots disappear.
In addition to the messy look and possible odor, mold and mildew can cause health issues for anyone exposed in their day-to-day living and working environments. People who are sensitive to molds–those who have environmental allergies or suppressed immune systems–may experience “nasal stuffiness, throat irritation, coughing or wheezing, eye irritation, or, in some cases, skin irritation,” according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. And though people without sensitivity to molds and mildews may experience no health problems, it’s still a best to proceed by keeping mold and mildew contained to avoid future issues from evolving.
