Blow Away Spores - Researcher - Richard W. Weber M.D., says floor mats and upholstery in cars can retain moisture from shoes and clothes, which can encourage mold growth and cause mold allergies. Blow away spores by opening the windows, or periodically run the heater during these spring and summer months when allergy reactions are at peak.
English Ivy - The Asthma, Allergy and Respiratory Care Medical Center in California say that growing a few pots of English ivy can also lower levels of airborne mold in a room within 12 hours. The mold spores are filtered from the air by the ivy through tiny openings in their leaves. For safety, keep the plants away from children ands pets since it can be toxic if eaten.
