6 Ways to Reduce Springtime Mold Allergies

With apologies to Alfred, Lord Tennyson: “Spring is a time when a young man’s fancy lightly turns to thoughts of love and many of us to the suffering that allergens cause.” Yes, that allergy-filled season is upon us again in full force. The sneezing, sniffling and watery eyes all detract from the more endearing features of spring and summer. Of course, mold is high up on the list of allergens that are quite active during these warmer months. So, how can allergy sufferers fight back against the increase in allergens that come with spring and summer? Here are some ways you can reduce your mold exposure this season and thus control your allergies.

  • Use a dehumidifier: Keeping the humidity in your home below 45% can go a long way in controlling the growth of mold. Mold does not do particularly well in low humidity climates. Purchase several dehumidifiers, place them strategically throughout the home and empty the water in them on a regular basis.
  • Track the numbers: All throughout the spring and summer, weather forecasters often inform the public of the pollen count. You can even arrange for the National Allergy Bureau to send you email alerts informing you of the outdoor spore levels. If you do have allergies, limit your outdoor activities on days when the pollen count is high.
  • Keep it Clean: Keep a watch out for mold. Clean refrigerator drip pans, door seals, and garbage pails and other places where mold can grow. Even though our mold cleanup in Thousand Oaks can do a more effective job of mold remediation than the average home owner, you still can play a huge role in stopping mold from establishing a foothold in your house.
  • Remove organic debris from your gutters and yard: Dead branches and leaves are breeding grounds for mold. Make sure to clean your gutter and dispose of all organic debris as the season grows warmer.
  • Filter your air: Keep your AC drip pans and drain lines clean. This will prevent mold from growing in them and potentially causing health problems for your family.
  • Call professionals at the first signs of mold: Experts can tell you when mold is spreading in your home. They can even detect it in areas that are not immediately visible. We can even give you more pointers on how to prevent its return.springtime allergies

In short, you can do a lot to control the growth of mold in your home. Even though it is especially important for people who suffer from allergies to control mold, it is also important for the rest of us to do so since mold can trigger serious conditions such as asthma.
