Health Tip: Coping With Mold Allergy

👤by Diana Kohnle 0 comments 🕔Tuesday, February 10th, 2015

(HealthDay News) -- Mold can creep into your home, causing symptoms including sneezing, coughing and watery eyes to those who are allergic.

The American Academy of Allergy Asthma & Immunology offers these tips for mold allergy sufferers:

When mold counts are high, stay indoors. Don't rake leaves. Keep your distance from fields with uncut grass. After you've been outside, immediately shower to wash away mold spores. Promptly fix any water leaks to prevent mold growth. If you have mold, clean with a vinegar solution. Keep the humidity in your home below 60 percent. If your basement has carpeting, remove it in favor of a surface that doesn't retain moisture.
