The flamboyantly colored trees, the leaves that cover the ground or even the more pleasant temperature… there are so many reasons why autumn is one of the most beautiful seasons of the whole year. Nevertheless, this period is conducive to the proliferation of molds in poorly ventilated rooms or houses, hence the appearance of more or less bothersome allergic symptoms in the most sensitive people.
Autumn and mold
In autumn, the air is both cool and humid, a combination that is quite favorable to the development of mold, especially in poorly ventilated places such as the basement or the bathroom. These microscopic fungi are manifested by the appearance of black, green or even white spots on the walls and ceilings as well as a more or less unbearable musty or earthy smell.
Mold, Allergy Symptoms and Fall
Moulds release microscopic spores which then spread through the surrounding air and can easily reach the respiratory tract of the occupants of the house. This is how allergic symptoms such as rhinitis, conjunctivitis, irritation of the eyes, nose and throat or even asthma return with the fall, especially if you constantly keep the windows closed. More serious cases like lung infection are even likely to occur.
Fall mold: what to do?
Mould thrives in damp, cool and poorly ventilated places. We therefore recommend that you resolve any water infiltration problems before the arrival of autumn. You should also ventilate your home as much as possible and regularly apply antifungal solutions to areas at risk. Finally, carry out an analysis of the air quality in your interior now so that you can take the necessary measures in time.
