How Can I Prevent Mold Allergy?

Preventive Strategies for Mold Allergy

Prevention strategies for mold allergy include:
 
  • Using a dehumidifier or air conditioner to maintain relative humidity below 50 percent and keep temperatures cool.
  • Venting bathrooms and clothes dryers to the outside, and run bathroom and kitchen vents while bathing and cooking.
  • Regularly checking faucets, pipes, and ductwork for leaks.
  • When first turning on home or car air conditioners, leaving the room or driving with the windows open for several minutes to allow mold spores to disperse.
  • Removing decaying debris from the yard, roof, and gutters.
  • Avoiding raking leaves, mowing lawns, or working with peat, mulch, hay, or dead wood. If you must do yard work, wear a mask and avoid working on hot, humid days.
