One of the best ways to avoid mold allergies is to avoid exposure to mold. This is pretty much impossible in every day living so limiting exposure is the next best thing. When mold counts are high, you can avoid going outside. After you come back in from an outdoor excursion, you can take a shower and change clothes to remove the mold spores from your hair, skin and clothing.
Once indoors, it is important to manage your environment.
Mold needs air to breathe, food, a nice warm temperature and moisture.
Managing the humidity in your home is an important start. You can measure this with a meter and you will want to keep it in the range of 30% to 60% or so. If it is too dry, other allergens tend to float in the air. If it is too moist, mold tends to propagate. Finding the right humidity is important.
You can eliminate a lot of mold issues by fixing leaking faucets. If you have leaking pipes, you need to fix these and follow proper mold remediation procedures.
Removing carpet may help as this will reduce the “soft material” in your home that tends to retain moisture.
