Putting Mold on Hold
Air on the side of caution, if you have allergies
Lots of people are allergic to different things -- plants, foods and pets, to cite a few. Some folks are even allergic to mold in the air.
If you suffer from the last problem, the University of Michigan's MCare Web site has some suggestions:
- Don't rake leaves that have been on the ground because mold begins to grow after several days;
- Make sure your basement is dry and well-ventilated, and use a dehumidifier to dry the air;
- Don't keep plants in the house.
