Molds produce tiny spores to reproduce. These spores waft through the indoor and outdoor air continually. When mold spores land on a damp spot indoors, they may begin growing and digesting whatever they are growing on in order to survive. When excessive moisture or water accumulates indoors, mold growth will often occur, particularly if the moisture problem remains undiscovered or unaddressed.
When you have indoor allergies, it’s hard to feel like “there’s no place like home.” The good news is there are some simple steps you can take to reduce your exposure to indoor allergens.

If you’re like most Americans, you spend much of your time indoors. Have you ever stopped to think about whether the air you’re breathing at home is healthy? Research has found that in some homes across America, the quality of indoor air can be worse than outdoor air. In part, this is because many homes are being built and remodeled tighter. You don’t have to be a building scientist to deal with the quality of air in your home; however, you should understand a few basics to get you started.
Spring is here, and it’s time for spring cleaning! For allergy and asthma fighters, a thorough cleaning can help control symptoms. Making changes to your indoor environment can take some time and effort.

Molds are part of the natural environment. Outdoors, molds play a part in nature by breaking down dead organic matter, such as fallen leaves and dead trees. But indoors, mold growth should be avoided.
