Indoor Allergins: Mold

Mold spores are nearly everywhere, and create a number of potential health concerns from allergies to asthma, to chronic illnesses. Mold thrives on dark, moist, bacteria-laden surfaces, most often found in bathrooms and kitchens. Controlling mold is largely a matter of controlling moisture.

Tips on Mold Control:

Keep plumbing in good repair.
Control home moisture levels below 40 percent.
Wipe your shower clean after each use.
Run ventilation fans during and after you shower or cook.
Open curtains and shades and let the light in to avoid mold growth.
Check basement and roof for leaks.
If you discover mold, hire a professional.
