Another angle to consider - if your household has been very fortunate so far to be reasonably illness-free, and suddenly you introduce a new source of germs / exposure, you might actually be more susceptible to colds than others. Your defense system doesn't have all the antibodies that others (who have a history of being more sick, over time) might.

So it could be nothing more than a case of the numbers catching up to you. It's almost as if you were overdue for all the colds you DIDN'T have for all those years, and now you get to have them all at once. Lucky you! :)

IOW, mold testing is not necessarily a bad idea, if you have reason to suspect it, but it may also just be "life happening".

Best of luck, hope you all feel better soon!
