Is Mold Making You Itchy?

Mold can cause itchiness in some people. Mold produces tiny spores that can become airborne and cause irritation when they come into contact with the skin. Some people may develop a rash or experience itchiness after being exposed to mold. Mold growth in homes is caused by excess moisture. Areas of the home that are prone to dampness, such as bathrooms, kitchens, and basements, are particularly susceptible to mold growth. Mold can also grow in areas that have suffered water damage, such as after a flood or leak. To prevent mold growth in the home, it’s important to keep the indoor humidity level below 60% and to fix any leaks or water damage promptly. Proper ventilation in bathrooms and kitchens can also help to reduce moisture levels and prevent mold growth. If you suspect that you have a mold problem in your home, it’s important to address it promptly to prevent potential health issues. Contact a building inspector who will be able to use a special device to measure the moisture. How much moisture is too much moisture in a home? See here.
