Wheezing, as you inhale and exhale trying to catch your breath. The difficult task
of trying to regain your breath is an ongoing battle for those with asthma. Asthma
is a growing health condition that plaques more and more people each year.
Currently, 26 million people suffer from this condition, with 18.9 million adults
and 7.1 million children affected. Asthma is a disease that affects your lungs and
is one of the most common long-term diseases for children.

Researchers have been perplexed by the potential causes of the growing number
of cases of asthma, especially in children. Some experts attribute growing asthma
conditions on the rising level of pollution, with the production of pollen being a
contributor to the 70 percent of people with asthma that also have allergies,
according to the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology. Even
the environment that kids are being raised in today can be another potential
factor for asthma, as more home’s are being built to be well-ventilated fortresses.
Tight-ventilated home’s, although economically sustainable, can also create a
breeding ground for mold to grow. Can there be a potential link between the
increase in asthma and exposure to mold?

What Triggers Asthma?


Asthma can be triggered by a number of different factors from allergens, irritants
in the air, respiratory illness, exercise, and even the weather. Doctors categorize
asthma into two types, allergic and nonallergic asthma. Allergic asthma can be
caused by exposure to an allergen that you react to unfavorably, whereas
nonallergic asthma is caused by stress, exercise, illnesses like a cold or the flu, or
exposure to extreme weather, irritants in the air or potentially a medication. If you
develop asthma it is important to monitor the potential causes and triggers of
your asthma symptoms to better be aware of when your asthma symptoms will
strike again.

Can Mold Cause Asthma?


How does mold affect your health?
According to the Center for Disease
Control and Prevention (CDC), when
you are exposed to mold it can have
a direct impact on the development
of asthma. Researchers believe
mold and fungus in the home might
be responsible for worsening
asthma, and in some cases might
even cause asthma. There about
1,000 different species of mold that
have been recognized here in the U.S. and the odds of one of these species of
mold eliciting asthma-symptoms is highly-likely. The American Academy of
Allergy, Asthma & Immunology says that the most common allergy-caused mold
includes Alternaria, Aspergillus, Cladosporium, and Penicillium.

Mold Spores a Potential Culprit


Molds produce small spores and other fungal particles that get released into the
air, which can, in turn, lead to possible asthma symptoms. You may not realize it
but you are surrounded by spores in your air. The mold spores are so small,
about three to 40 microns in size, and can easily affect your asthma. Mold spores
can act as an allergen and when ingested through your nose or mouth it can
cause a reaction, this reaction can be an asthma-related symptom that is
triggered by the spores.

Black Mold & Asthma


Stachybotrys Chartarum, also known as black mold, is known as one of the most
toxic forms of mold that you can be exposed to in
your home. According to the Cleveland Clinic, the
correlation between black mold and asthma
depends on the length of the exposure and how
sensitive you are to the mold. You could have a
more severe reaction to the black mold because of
the higher volume of spores released from this type
of toxic mold.

In a study published in the journal, “Allergy”,


researchers found that people that were exposed to
black mold, who developed asthma-type symptoms continued to show symptoms
for at least three years after the first exposure to the mold. This research shows
that lung damage caused by black mold can have long-term effects on your
health.

Mold Asthma Symptoms


Allergic reactions to mold are common
and can be your first signs of the
potential onset of asthma. Mold related
asthma symptoms, similar to those of
allergies include;

1. Wheezing
2. Rash
3. Watery Eyes
4. A Runny Nose

How to Get Rid of Spores in Your Indoor Air


Mold spores do a good job of ltering into your home’s air and eventually
settling on surfaces in your home. When these spores make a “home”, in
your home it can signi cantly a ect your health and lead to a potential
outbreak of asthma. The di cult part of removing spores from your
environment is that even if you remove the mold from your home, spores
can still hang around and make your environment toxic. Once you have
had a mold remediation specialist come out and extract the mold from
your home, your next line of defense is to clean the air in your home. The
best method to accomplish this goal is through an e ective air puri er,
that will help filter out particulates from your home’s air.

The EnviroKlenz UV Mobile System was designed


with a double ltration process, including a
patented earth mineral technology cartridge that
removes odors and chemicals, as well as a
hospital grade HEPA lter that lters out particles
as small as 0.3 microns in size. The added bene t
of this UV air puri er is its ultraviolet germicidal
radiation lights (UVC lights) that ash onto the top of the HEPA, killing any
particulates and mold spores that are trapped by the cartridge and the
HEPA lter. These lights have the capability of killing these particles with a
high-e ciency of kill, making your job easy to lter out and clean your
home’s air of toxic spores.

Mold spores can be a potential hazard to your environment and can lead to
an array of health conditions like asthma. Protecting your home and air
from mold and mold spores will help you to purify your air to aid in the
betterment of your overall health.

“I have the filter in my home, office, and son’s school. One of the biggest difference I
notice is that we all sleep better when the filters are running. Furthermore, we had the
filters running in the office after it was painted and the carpets were changed, and that
toxic smell was gone in a day and a half. The work was done Friday, and by Monday no
one complained of headaches and very few people even commented that the smell of
remodel was noticeable.”

“Months after the 2017 Forest Fire Season, previously known as summertime in western
Montana, that fine particulate we all breathed for weeks on end continues to be
problematic. Persistent sinus issues, in particular, have become a norm. We are planning a
big push to introduce our patient population to the Enviro-Klenz family of air-filtration
products. The folks at EnviroKlenz have developed an affiliate program that brings long-
term benefits to the practitioner as well as the patient; and, they responded immediately
to our ask for support, by developing a data sheet specifically for the wood-smoke aspects
of their filtration systems. EnviroKlenz is a responsible and responsive company I am
delighted to be working with.”

“Indoor air pollution is a major health problem today. There are often more harmful
pollutants inside a home than outside—even in smoggy cities like Los Angeles. EnviroKlenz
products o er a quick, easy, e ective solution to modern indoor air pollution. These
products not only remove pollutants and odors from the air, they destroy chemical
pollutants completely by breaking apart their molecular structure. EnviroKlenz products
can be lifesavers for anyone who needs or wants to live in a home free from toxic
chemical exposures. They destroy a broad spectrum of toxic chemicals, including
fragrance, tobacco smoke, and pesticides. I have conducted an independent review of the
materials used to make EnviroKlenz products, and found them to meet my standards to be
considered toxic free. Not only are the products themselves toxic free, they can make your
home more toxic free as well."
