Mold Season is Mud Season
Although New England was sparred this winter and barely received much snow at all this year, that doesn’t mean there won’t be some heavy rainfall in the near future. Those living in the Northeast always experience another fifth season we like to call Mud Season. This unique season falls between winter and spring and that’s when mold is at it’s height.
Why is This Time of Year Mold Season?
Mold can often cause immune issues such as allergies all year round, but it’s during heavy rains and winter thawing that mold reaches it’s peak, causing allergic reactions such as sneezing, runny nose and coughing.
Mud season is mold season because many homeowners will often start airing out their homes and going through a “spring cleaning” process during these mild days. This cleaning process can often disturb unknown mold colonies which can then spread through your home’s airways. On a nice day you may also want to open doors and windows — but even the slightest breeze from disturb mold colonies.
Why It’s Good to Have a Mold Inspection
It’s always a good idea to call a professional mold remediation company if you suspect you have mold in your home. Those who are prone to having basement or attic leaks should definitely consider a mold inspection each mud season to make sure your home is prepared for spring and summer. Also, those suffering from allergies that don’t seem to go away may also have a mold problem.
