Anyone who suffers from mold allergies should consider inspecting the indoor environments where they work, go to school, and live for the presence of indoor mold growth.

Just over 1 in 4 adults (25.7%) and nearly 1 in 5 children (18.9%) suffer from a seasonal allergy according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). While many associate allergies with spring, allergies can be a problem for some people any time of the year, including the summer months.

Summer allergies can be caused by seasonal outdoor culprits, like pollen or mold, or due to the presence of indoor allergens. Depending on where one lives, they may be exposed to a variety of different pollens. Generally speaking, trees usually pollinate during spring, but grasses and weeds can cause pollen allergies throughout the summer months.

High levels of airborne mold are also a common occurrence during the summer months. Outdoors, warm and moist conditions can be conducive for elevated mold spore counts. These same spores can also make their way indoors through open doors and windows, and even on people’s clothes and hair.

“Anyone who suffers from mold allergies should consider inspecting the indoor environments where they work, go to school, and live for the presence of indoor mold growth,” said Frank Selamie, President of CTSI. “Mold will quickly begin to grow on many building materials, furnishings, and personal belongings when moisture is present. The moisture could be due to water damage or elevated humidity levels. Even mold growing out of sight in places such as wall cavities, under flooring, behind cabinets, or elsewhere could cause indoor air quality problems. Dust mites are another common indoor allergen during the summer months as these tiny creatures thrive during warm and humid conditions.”

To help building owners and managers optimize indoor conditions during the summer months and all year long, the indoor environmental quality and industrial hygiene professionals at CTSI offer testing, monitoring, and consulting services to identify and mitigate exposure risks to indoor allergens, respiratory irritants, and known asthma triggers. They also recently sponsored an educational video about summer allergies and indoor air quality that can be seen at:
