The dangers of mold

Many people have mold in their homes and don't even know it - and it may be affecting their quality-of-life. Mold can cause symptoms such as wheezing, eye and skin irritation and sinus congestion, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). However, those are just the minor symptoms. Mold can actually pose a severe threat to those most susceptible, including asthma attacks, fever and lung infections.

Depending on the type of growth, mold can be extremely difficult to get rid of. If it's just growing on wall surfaces, you can clean it pretty easily. But mold can grow in heating ducts, inside walls and in the ceiling - making it incredibly tricky and expensive to clean. According to The New York Times, it can cost tens of thousands of dollars to rid your home of a critical mold problem.

One can significantly reduce airborne mold spores in the home by using an air purification system which contains true HEPA filtration. FreshAirPro sells only the most well respected brands, such as IQAir. The IQAir HealthPro Series includes purifiers that can clear your home from a wide array of irritants down to .003 microns in size. That includes volatile organic compounds (VOCs), allergens, air pollution and smoke. Don't let a mold allergy keep you sick in bed. Clear your air before it's too late.
