Are You Too Tired At Home? Mold Exposure May Be The Reason.

Are You Always Too Tired At Home? Mold Exposure May Be The Reason.

Are You Too Tired At Home? Mold Exposure May Be The Reason.Are you tired all the time? If so, you’re not alone — especially not today. Surveys from early 2022 point to around 60 percent of American adults constantly feeling tired, particularly at home. Hectic work schedules, excess screen time, sleep deprivation, and stress contribute to this trend. And, we can add one more common cause: Mold exposure.

You probably already know that being around a lot of mold can make you sick. After all, it’s why we worry about it growing in our homes. But, do you know what health problems mold can cause — or how varied or subtle they can be?

It’s more than just “feeling sick,” although that’s a start. 

Everything from skin rashes to asthma attacks to even vertigo or depression can stem from too much mold around you. But then again, plenty of other factors can trigger those symptoms. 

So, microbial contamination, like breathing in spores at home, usually isn’t the first thing you or your doctor consider when diagnosing these medical issues.

Before we go any further, we need to stress: We’re not doctors! But, our service plays a vital role in removing mold from people’s homes. As a result, we’ve learned to recognize the signs of mold problems in a house or business and the physical symptoms that stem from exposure. 

HydroKleen208 specializes in mini split and heat pump cleaning in Boise Metro and Valley County in Idaho. And these systems are notorious for breeding mold that circulates in the air you breathe. 

If you’re experiencing signs of fatigue or other health concerns, please consult your general practitioner right away. After that, it’s worth checking your home for signs of a mold problem. Finding and fixing that can be the key to feeling better and healthier. 

This article will explore the relationship between mold exposure and feeling tired. Then, we’ll touch on how to identify and address a mold problem in your home. And, if you use a mini split or other heat pump system in your home, you’ll especially want to read till the end. 

Meanwhile, you can always call us with any questions or concerns about the indoor air quality in your Treasure Valley home or business. We’re here at (208) 779-5596.

Can Mold In Your House Make You Tired?

More than three decades of research show that mold exposure, particularly at home, can cause people to feel tired or develop chronic fatigue. It’s due to mycotoxins, which are toxins produced by mold, decreasing oxygenation in the body, among other reactions that cause people to feel tired.

More Signs Of Mold Exposure

Fatigue isn’t the only symptom of mycotoxin exposure. People may also feel sick, develop rashes, start wheezing, or otherwise have difficulty breathing. These issues are even more pronounced for people with mold allergies.

Related: Can Black Mold Cause Vertigo?

Even more severe reactions can include “brain fog” or trouble concentrating, immune deficiencies, and other serious health issues that can become chronic.

However, part of the problem with identifying these is that they mimic many other issues. For instance, many of those minor symptoms can look like seasonal allergies or a reaction to different fabrics or laundry detergents.

And neurological issues can stem from a wide variety of causes. That’s why it’s also essential to look for other signs of mold in your home and address any you find.

Three Common Signs Of Mold In Your Home

Along with physical symptoms, the most common signs that your home has a mold problem are:

  • Persistent Musty Or Mildew Smell
  • Finding Spots On Furniture, Walls, Or Clothing
  • Walls Are Warped

Related: What Is The Best Temperature To Prevent Mold In My Home?

Persistent Musty Or Mildew Smell

Musty smells are a sign you have standing water or excess moisture somewhere. That means mold isn’t far behind if it’s not already growing. A mildew smell, more specifically, is a sign of fungus and organic growth.

Finding Spots On Furniture, Walls, Or Clothing

Collections of mold spores often take the form of round, colored spots and splotches on many surfaces in the house. Smaller ones may be flat, or they grow to become sticky or fuzzy.

Walls Are Warped

Bulging walls, bubbling or peeling wallpaper, or other damage is often a sign of mold growing where you can’t see it. And, even if that’s not the problem, it may be soon: Those are usually signs of water damage, possibly from a plumbing problem.

Common Mold Problems With Mini Splits

You are very likely to have a mold problem in your home if you’ve had a ductless mini split system for more than a year. It turns out that the air handlers become infested with mold very quickly, and they’re hard to clean. As a result, your heating and cooling system constantly spreads spores through the air it circulates.

For example, here’s a photo of the coil inside an air handler. We cleaned one side and left the other half dirty so the homeowner could see the difference:

You Can See How Dirty A Mini Split System Can Get

And, we’re sorry to say, that’s what we find most often when we show up for a cleaning. The problem is that the insides of these units are dark, moist, and warm — perfect for mold and other microbial contaminants to grow.  Meanwhile, it’s not easy to clean these out. You’d have to disassemble the entire thing, which voids the warranty unless a professional does it. Then, each tiny component needs to be scrubbed and sanitized, which could take hours and hours for a single air handler.  That’s where we come in.  Related: How Often Should A Mini Split Be Cleaned?

Vertigo And Black Mold In Your Home: Are They Related?

The Unexpected Relationship Between Vertigo And Black Mold Exposure

Vertigo And Black Mold In Your Home: Are They Related?Sudden dizziness. Problems focusing or keeping your balance. Nausea. Sweating. Sudden hearing loss. The room feels like it’s spinning around you. Could the culprit be mold? The answer may surprise you.

The health impacts from mold exposure are real, and they can be severe. But part of the problem is that the symptoms often mimic many other common medical issues. As a result, you or your doctor may not pinpoint the actual cause right away.

And, yes: One of those problems can be vertigo, especially if your symptoms are new and persistent.

Now, that doesn’t mean mold is automatically to blame. After all, other, more common triggers are migraines, inner ear infections or problems, and head injuries.

But, if your sudden onset occurs along with signs of mold infestation, there’s a good chance the two are related. 

This article addresses the problem on a few different fronts. 

First, we’ll talk about the relationship between mold and vertigo. Then, we’ll talk a little more about the condition itself. Finally, we’ll walk you through how to check for mold in your home and what to do if you find it. 

We need to note that we are not medical professionals, and you should talk to your doctor about any health concerns. 

But, since our specialty is mini split and heat pump deep cleaning, we run into many mold problems in the Treasure Valley.

As a result, we’ve learned a thing or two about the effects of mold exposure. So, we’re sharing those with you here. If these problems sound familiar to you, and you use a mini split or heat pump to heat and cool part or all of your home in Boise Metro or Valley County, give us a call today.

Can Black Mold Cause Vertigo?

Black mold can cause vertigo in direct and indirect ways. First, exposure to mycotoxins in mold causes dizziness, triggering vertigo. Second, people who are allergic to mold can experience vertigo due to mold exposure.

Related: Can Mold Make You Dizzy?

Specifically, many doctors believe allergies can lead to Meniere’s disease, an inner-ear disorder that causes vertigo. While the exact causes aren’t yet known, allergies, viral infections, and head injuries appear to play significant roles. 

And, of course, this is far from the only problem people experience from black mold exposure. Less severe symptoms include rashes, watery eyes, runny noses, and trouble breathing. Other people experience anything from fatigue and nausea to “brain fog” and trouble concentrating. 

Related: Mold Toxicity And Physical Symptoms

What Is Vertigo, Exactly?

What Is Vertigo?Vertigo isn’t a disease itself. Instead, it’s a symptom caused by an underlying condition. For instance, we mentioned Meniere’s Disease as a trigger, along with inner ear infections, migraines, ear infections, and other disorders. It can be a one-time experience or become a chronic problem.
And that depends largely on what’s causing it for you. In the case of mold exposure, you’re likely to experience it more than if there’s a mold problem at home. We’ll talk more about that again later. But first, let’s go back to the physical symptoms you’re experiencing.

Four Ways To Address Vertigo

The four best ways to begin addressing chronic vertigo episodes are:

  1. Visit Your Doctor
  2. Change Your Sleep Habits
  3. Adjust Your Movements
  4. Do Specific Exercises

Visit Your Doctor

Your first step, no matter what, is visiting your doctor. You need to identify and hopefully rule out various illnesses that may be at the root of your problem. Your doctor will also help you put together a treatment plan and may prescribe medication for an underlying issue.

Change Your Sleep Habits

Get into a stress-free routine before bed, so you’re relaxed. Sleep on your back to avoid fluid buildup in your ears.

Adjust Your Movements

Try not to stoop down when picking up something. Don’t stretch your neck too far, and turn your head slowly and carefully. These steps avoid irritating your ears or otherwise triggering an episode. And, returning to your sleep habits: Get out of bed carefully and slowly when you wake up.

Do Specific Exercises

You can find many simple movement exercises that help end an episode or prevent future problems. 

Now that we’ve dug into those symptoms and how to avoid them, let’s talk again about eliminating specific triggers in your home. Specifically, mold. After all, finding and removing a mold infestation helps with more than just vertigo.

More Signs Of Mold In Your Home

Identifying a mold problem from physical symptoms is tricky because those symptoms mimic other medical issues. So, here are more things to look for:

Related: Healthy Air At Home Is Crucial For People With Asthma

Damp, Musty Smells

Damp, musty smells indicate a good breeding ground for mold (spores need dark, moist, and warm places to grow). And, the must smell on floors and walls can mean there’s already a problem.

Spots On Walls, Furniture And Clothing

Mold growth can take the form of fluffy or slimy spots that are black or white. You can find them on surfaces all over your home, and even shirts and other clothing items.

Warping Walls

Bulges, peeling wall/paper, and other signs that look like water damage may also be caused by mold growth behind the walls. At the same time, there may be a hidden leak that’s contributing to mold.

Ductless Mini Splits And Mold

Now, we need to address a source of mold and spores buildup that’s becoming more and more common in Idaho: Ductless mini splits in homes and businesses.

For the most part, these heating and cooling systems are excellent: THey provide exceptional comfort while using very little energy. But, the downside is that they are prime breeding grounds for microbial contaminants. And, they’re very tough to clean.

Remember how we mentioned that spores require dark, moist, warm places to grow? Well, you just described the inside of an air handler.

Warm air enters the system, and there’s no light in there. As the unit cools the air, water vapor condenses back into liquid. Most of it drains out from the unit, but there’s still some left in there.

The result? Mold growth that ends up looking like this:

A Ductless System Can Get Moldy If Not Taken Care Of

So, how do you get rid of it? 

As we said, it’s not easy — even for a professional HVAC tech. They’d have to take apart each unit in your home and scrub each one manually. That’s incredibly time-consuming when you have to get in between each of the small ridges on that coil we showed you there. 

That makes it very expensive and not consistently effective. Meanwhile, all that junk you see on the coil makes its way back into the air you breathe every day. 

Related: How Often Should A Mini Split Be Cleaned?

Fortunately, there’s a better solution out there: Hydrokleen’s world-renowned heat pump and mini split cleaning process. 

Our parent company, HydroKleen Global, spent more than ten years developing and improving the tools, processes, and nontoxic cleaners necessary to flush out all the dirt, toxins, and microbial contaminants from a mini split system in one quick visit. 

You can read more about our process in our Learning Library. But the long and short of it is: We’ll show you the progress we’re making during our visit so you can see what’s happening. And, we guarantee it improves your system’s performance and makes the air you breathe feel cleaner.

How Long Does Mold Remediation Take In Homes And Businesses?

How Long Does Mold Remediation Take For Home And Businesses In Idaho?

How Long Does Mold Remediation Take In Homes And Businesses?Most mold remediation, or removal, projects take between one and five days. The timeline and scope of the work depend on how much mold there is, what it’s growing on, and where it’s located.

In particular, the cost and time it takes to remove the mold go up when the infestation is in hard-to-access areas. That’s usually behind your walls. In that case, you’re also dealing with the costs to remove and replace building materials.

Mold remediation can be disruptive and expensive. But, if your family or business are suffering from physical ailments due to exposure, it’s necessary. Not only for your health but also for your home or commercial space. Eventually, that damage can become a structural issue.

Related: Mold Toxicity And Physical Symptoms

Unfortunately, HydroKleen208 can’t help you with large-scale mold removal. Our specialty is mini split and heat pump cleanings. That’s just one small part of remediation and preventing a problem in the first place. But, it’s an important one.

Related: How Mold In Ductless Mini Splits Cause Biotoxin Illness

We’ll talk a little more about how we can prevent a mold problem from taking hold or returning in your Treasure Valley or Boise Metro home or commercial space. For now, let’s look at what to expect when you call a professional.

What Happens During Mold Remediation

A typical mold remediation job follows these steps:

  • Repair Plumbing Problems
  • Isolate Contaminated Areas
  • Eradicate Airborne Pollutants
  • Remove Infested Materials
  • Dry All Wet Materials
  • Clean And Disinfect Infested Areas
  • Replace Or Rebuild As Necessary

The timeline and cost for your home will depend on how bad of an infestation you have. In the worst cases, remediation includes replacing wooden joists or beams that are soft and compromised from mold growing on it.

You’ll also notice that the process includes getting rid of airborne spores. We’ll touch on that more later.

Preparing For Mold Remediation

Your first step toward preparing for mold remediation is getting an air quality sampling or test. Do this before your mold removal company does an inspection, so they have more information to start with.

Next, the removal company inspects everything visible — in other words, they can’t see what’s behind the walls. But, they’ll look for signs of hidden problems.

Home Preparation

First, don’t get rid of anything before the removal begins. Moving furniture or large objects spreads spores to different parts of the house.

Next, document and take pictures of all signs of mold damage before work begins. That way, you can ensure your removal company addresses everything. And you have evidence for an insurance claim or lawsuit.

Related: Toxic Mold Legal Claims

Finally, make arrangements for your pets to stay somewhere else. In severe cases, you’ll want to leave for a few days as well.

Commercial Space Preparation

Before calling a professional, a property manager or landlord should take mold remediation steps. These involve assessing the square footage of moly areas, noting any water damage, cleaning small instances of mold growth, addressing moisture and humidity problems, and investigating any occupant complaints. 

Related: Indoor Air Toxins And Their Symptoms: Boise Metro, Valley County Homes

Assign a mold remediation manager if there’s a persistent problem. And, consult a professional removal company if you’re finding signs of mold throughout the building or if it keeps coming back. 

Order an air quality test before a professional mold inspection, and communicate with your employees, occupants, or tenants about any remediation steps.

Risks Of Mold Returning After Remediation

There’s always a risk of mold returning after remediation. Even if the removal company did everything right, new spores could take hold if you don’t address the conditions that caused the problem in the first place.

One of the biggest drivers of mold infestation is excess humidity in your home. Keeping the relative humidity between 30 and 50 percent at all times significantly reduces the risk of more mold.

Related: What Is The Best Temperature To Prevent Mold Growth In My Home?

Next, avoid clutter and regularly clean behind large appliances. Use exhaust fans in the bathroom and kitchen to get rid of steam and moisture.

Your HVAC system can help by dehumidifying the air and eliminating standing water. But, it can also pose a risk — especially if you have a ductless system.

Mold Buildup (And Risks) With A Ductless Mini Split System

Over the years, we’ve discovered that ductless mini splits become infested with mold and other microbial contaminants very easily. HydroKleen identified the problem more than a decade ago in countries where ductless systems have been much more common for a long time.

The problem is that, for a long time, there was no good way to clean out the air handlers and heat pumps. Even a professional HVAC company would have to take hours to disassemble everything,

Then, they’d need to scrub every component manually. That gets incredibly time-consuming once you get to the tiny ridges between each fin on a condenser coil.

But, those coils in the air handlers are prime breeding grounds. For example, here’s a picture of a dirty coil we came across:

A Ductless System Can Get Moldy If Not Taken Care Of

That’s why HydroKleen Global developed a unique system especially for flushing out and sanitizing mini split air handlers and heat pumps. With over a decade of ongoing R&D behind the process, our parent company has cleaned more than 1.5 million systems in 45 countries.

New Technology That Helps Control Asthma And Prevent Attacks

Breathe Smarter: New Asthma Management Technology [2022]

Modern science hasn’t found a cure for asthma yet. But, the latest technology can help you manage your symptoms and treatment better than ever before. Everything from apps to smart products to new cleaning strategies makes a world of difference.

And, these breakthroughs come just in time.

Even before 2020, Americans, in general, spent around 90 percent of their time indoors where asthma triggers build up. Now, with remote work and learning taking off, managing your home’s air quality is crucial.

We’ll explore the latest and greatest tools out there. If you’re looking for more ways to improve the indoor air quality in your Donnelly, ID home (or anywhere in the Treasure Valley), call HydroKleen208 at (208) 779-5596.

New Asthma Treatment Technology

The basics behind rescue inhalers, albuterol treatments, oral corticosteroids, and other standard treatments are still the same. But, their delivery methods are getting smarter, and you have more ways than ever to track, treat, and address your symptoms. 

Smart Inhalers

Do you know how often you use your inhaler? Your doctor probably asks, and sometimes it’s tough to keep track. THat’s where smart inhalers come in. 

These new products use Bluetooth and other mobile technology to track your usage. Not only do you get a record of when you’re using it. That data can help prevent future attacks. 

With close, careful tracking, you and your doctor can identify the expected times you need your medication. From there, you can work on how to prevent those events. Your doctor may also recognize a need to change your medicine or adjust the dosage.

Some models can even tell if you’re using the inhaler properly or not. Or alert you that you’re entering an area with a lot of pollen or pollution

Interactive Spirometers

Managing asthma for children is challenging. They don’t always understand why they need to do things their friends don’t have to. Or take medicine that other kids don’t need. An interactive spirometer makes it easier for them to follow doctors’ orders.

Take Aluna, for instance. It looks like a toy, and it connects to an app with an interactive game for children. That makes it more engaging for them, which means using it is less of a struggle. 

It will also time out after too many tries. That way, your child won’t tire out their lungs by “playing” with it too much at once. 

Meanwhile, the app tracks and stores the results. You can download the data, send them to your doctor, and get real-time alerts with results when your child uses it.

New Apps

There Are Even Apps That Can Help You Manage Asthma NowBeyond gadgets, your smartphone alone can help you manage your asthma. They’re easy to use, and most are free.

Asthma MD (And Others)

Asthma MD makes it easy to keep a detailed asthma journal. It lets you log your medication usage, attacks, and more. Since it’s an app, you can access it on multiple devices — no need to keep a physical book with you. 

You can color-code it and log entries for everyone in your family. And send the data directly to your doctor.

You can also check out Asthma Buddy and AsthmaTrack. They have similar features. 

KagenAir App

The KagenAir App isn’t just for people with asthma. But, it’s an excellent tool for those managing it for themselves or family members. It’s an app that tracks weather along with common asthma and allergy triggers in the environment around you. 

Related: Common Asthma Triggers From Mother Nature [And How To Avoid Them)

You can fine-tune it by answering a few questions about your allergy or asthma symptoms and triggers. It takes less than a minute every day. 

From there, the app customizes your daily report. Depending on what you need to know, you’ll get information about pollen counts, humidity, wind speed and direction, mold spores, pollution, and more. 

Preventing Asthma Attacks In Homes With Ductless Mini Splits

What Does It Cost To Clean A Heat Pump And Mini Split In Boise Metro?

Homes with mini splits, or ductless heating and cooling systems, often have more asthma triggers than you may realize. 

All sorts of dust, dirt, and microbial contaminants build up inside the air handlers. They take hold behind the barrel fans and in the tiny grooves of the coil behind the filter. 

Then, when the system turns on, all that junk blows into the air around you. 

If you have a mini split, ask yourself: Have you been experiencing more allergy symptoms or asthma attacks after having your system for a year or longer? Does the air in your home feel stale or just not as clean as it used to? 

Related: Excellent Indoor Air Quality Is Essential For People With Asthma

If so, the odds are your air handlers are gunked up with pollen and dust and infested with mold and mildew. If you were to take it apart (which we don’t recommend), you’d probably see something like this: 

A Ductless System Can Get Moldy If Not Taken Care Of

That stuff can and will trigger asthma attacks — and worse. In severe cases, mold spores circulating from an air handler cause toxic mold problems.

Fortunately, there’s a fast and easy solution for businesses and homeowners in Valley County and Boise Metro: A deep cleaning. 

Why A Deep Cleaning Is Important

A mini split deep cleaning goes way beyond cleaning your filter or even having an HVAC professional perform service or maintenance on your system. It’s the only way to reach every nook and cranny inside your system and eradicate the pollutants inside it.

What We Discovered About Mini Splits

Mini splits are catching on now in the U.S. But, they’ve been around much longer in other countries like Australia. That’s where John Sanders founded HydroKleen in 2009.

Sanders discovered that, for all the great benefits ductless systems offered, they developed problems as they got older. Their energy efficiency dropped significantly. And, respiratory issues, including toxic mold syndrome, were rising among people with mini splits.

Both problems stemmed from the same source: Dirty air handlers.

Microbial contamination built up inside these units even when homeowners had them serviced regularly and cleaned the filters each month. These measures weren’t enough to stop the inside from looking like this:

The Hydrokleen Story: Who Are And What Makes Us Special

Sanders and his partners set out to do two things: Raise awareness about the risks a dirty mini split can pose. And eliminate that risk one cleaning at a time.

Our Research And Development

The HydroKleen team has always made research and development the top priority. The team spent years designing pumps and equipment strong enough to clean even the dirtiest coils and barrel fans inside your air handler without breaking or bending any parts.

Next, they developed a comprehensive water catchment system. After all, a cleaning wouldn’t work if the techs left dirty water or residue in people’s homes and on their stuff.

But the most challenging aspect was the cleaning solution.

It took years to develop a non-hazardous cleaning agent that could eradicate microbial contamination without affecting people or their pets in their homes. Or the environment at large.

Today, the cleaning solution is 100-percent non-toxic and non-allergenic. And it exceeds the world’s strictest national guidelines for health and safety standards.

With all this in place, HydroKleen made a considerable impact in their native Australia. The next step was taking it across the world.

Our Licensing Model

The HydroKleen team knew quality control was crucial as they expanded. After all, they couldn’t be in every office and home across their world. But, their licensees could. And they needed to uphold the same standards as the original team.

With that in mind, HydroKleen created a robust business model to maintain those high standards anywhere in the world.

With hours of online video training modules and dozens of guides, strategies, and resources, HydroKleen ensures that anyone with their name, logo, van, or equipment lives up to the company’s very high standards.

That brings us all the way from Molendinar in Australia to the Treasure Valley here in Idaho.
