In nature, mold and fungus break down decaying plant and animal matter and enrich the soil around them, but can bring their share of issues if they grow in your home. There are many types that happily live in homes. Many of these mildews, molds and fungi do best in damp, obscured places in your house such as your basement or hidden regions of your laundry room. Fortunately, this type of mold is typically harmless, but sometimes a little splotch can grow to bigger proportions. Mold procreates with the use of spores released into the air and causes sickness if breathed in by anyone with mold sensitivities or breathing issues.

For many people, household mold, mildew or fungi are harmless and go unnoticed. That said, they can affect other, more allergy prone demographics. Mold sensitivities are seen in many the population and strike at various times based on the concentration of mold. If you have a mold allergy, you’ll likely sneeze, have a runny nose, red eyes or a skin rash when mold is nearby. Mold and mildew can be especially triggering for asthma attacks too. Additional sensitive groups at risk include:
- Infants and toddlers
- Those 65 and up
- Immune compromised individuals
- People with chronic pulmonary disease
Don’t Let Mold in your Home
Thankfully, there are methods you can follow around your house to remove and avoid mold. Block mold from your home altogether by periodically wiping down your HVAC unit, weatherproofing and insulating outside areas. Mold and mildew grow in damp spots in your house, like bathrooms or crawlspaces, so frequently cleaning these regions helps more you’d think. Mold does best in warm, damp surroundings, so implementing dehumidifiers around your home can dry out the area, making it uninhabitable for mold.
