Winter Won’t Save You From Mold in Albany, NY
We often think of mold as an issue we only deal with, for example, in the hot and humid summer months. Mold, however, has no off season in Albany, NY.
Severe winters can be especially hard on homes. Besides from the usual suspects of ice, hail, snow, and severe winds causing out door seals, window frames, and roofs to leak, there are other, less obvious, mold causing effects of the cold that we may not think of.
When it gets cold outside, we turn the heat way up in our homes. You have probably noticed the condensation that builds up on exterior walls and windows during these times. That condensation doesn’t just go away, instead it lingers, seeping into your walls. Rooms, nooks, corners, and closets along these exterior walls, especially uninsulated exterior walls, are especially susceptible to mold because the ambient temperature inside is so much higher than the ambient temperature outside. This effect the relative humidity (RH) levels, causing condensation not just on the walls, but in them. Sheet rock is strong, but it is porous, and that means that mold can grow literally inside of your walls.
How Do I Know If I Have Mold Sickness?
This for one thing, combined with the fact that most of us get colds in the winter, can be confusing and harmful to your health. If you have what you think is a winter cold that will not seem to go away, then, you may actually be experiencing mold sickness. With symptoms like sinus congestion, dry and itchy eyes, aching joints, fatigue, and headaches, with this in mind, it is easy to tell ourselves it is just a lingering cold.
Unfortunately, these symptoms can worsen into things such as infertility, impotence, jaundice, dermatitis, and immunosuppression. If that is not scary enough, certain molds are neurotoxins, which means that they can result in coma or even death. However, if this seems like scary hype, it isn’t. On the other hand, these are scientific facts that we hope will encourage you to take action on behalf of your own health and the health of your family.
