3. Hidden Health Hazards

If your windows or doors need a replacement you may notice water on your windows this time of year. This is because the air on the outside of the glass is colder than the air inside, causing water droplets to form called condensation. The accumulation of condensation can lead to mold and rot of your windows and doors. The symptoms of mold exposure range from person to person, with some more sensitive to its effects. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), “Exposure to damp and moldy environments may cause a variety of health effects or none at all. Some people are sensitive to molds. For these people, molds can cause nasal stuffiness, throat irritation, coughing or wheezing, eye irritation, or, in some cases, skin irritation. People with mold allergies may have more severe reactions.”
