The National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA) has published an article with tips on improving indoor air quality for National Asthma and Allergy Awareness Month in May.
While mold allergies are common inside and outside, mold may be difficult to spot in the home. NADCA suggests looking for mold near water in hidden places, like attics or under carpets, or even behind drywall. Humid homes or those with a strange, earthy smell may also harbor mold. Prevention is key, and running a dehumidifier and getting air ducts cleaned can help stop mold growth and reduce the spread of other allergens and contaminants in the home.
