Los Alamitos, CA
With the holiday season only a short time away many homes across the country are decorated with Christmas trees, wreaths and a host of other holiday ornaments and decorations. For the 20% of Americans who suffer from allergies and the 22 million who are afflicted by asthma the holiday season can be anything but joyous.
For those who suffer from asthma and allergies their afflictions can be triggered by mold and dust from holiday decorations. Artificial trees and wreaths, not to mention all the other holiday decorations are often stored in locations that allow them to accumulate dust, which can become aerosolized. Real trees and decorations that have been wet may be bearing mold. Both dust and mold are well known triggers for people suffering from asthma and allergies.
According to the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology approximately 10 percent of the U.S. population is sensitive to mold. Mold spores can also cause countless allergic reactions, asthma attacks, sinus infections and a host of other health problems. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recognizes that exposure to mold is a known asthma trigger for many who suffer from the condition.
