Why do I keep getting sick?
It's that time of year again, and it's not always easy to tell the difference between a cold or flu and mold exposure. Mold spores enter our homes in some of the most inconspicuous ways—even through clothing and open windows. This is why understanding the signs or symptoms of possible mold exposure is key. Signs to look out for are itchy, red eyes; runny or stuffy nose; coughing; wheezing; shortness of breath; and tightness in the chest. If you're feeling under the weather regularly, pay special attention to these symptoms as they may indicate a more serious underlying cause than sniffles from the change in season.
Don’t be fooled by the common cold. If you have symptoms that last longer than a week or seem to be getting worse, it could be mold. Mold exposure can cause serious health problems, so if you have a mold problem, call (309)-418-9511, so we can schedule a mold inspection. A healthy home is the key to a healthier you, and we want to help you achieve that goal.
