According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), mold is found in virtually every environment, both indoors and outdoors. Knowing that mold exposure can increase the development of diseases such as asthma and allergies, people are left wondering how they can decrease their exposure.
To begin, people who are sensitive to allergens or mold should try to avoid or limit their time in areas that are more likely to have mold. These areas include, but are not limited to:
- Shady damp areas outside
- Antique shops
- Construction areas
- Flower shops
These areas have something in common, humidity. Any place that humidity is high (over 50%) throughout the day, can be a breeding ground for mold.
