How can I control pollens and molds?

ANSWER

Ventilate bathrooms, basements, and other damp places.

Use air conditioning because it removes excess air moisture, filters out pollens from the outside, and provides air circulation throughout your home. Filters should be changed per the manufacturer's recommendations.

Avoid wallpaper and carpets in bathrooms.

Use bleach to kill mold in bathrooms.

Keep windows and doors shut during pollen season.
