Wet Fall Weather Brings Mold Allergies
The weather in the Boston area — and throughout the entire Northeast — was quite dry this past summer. However, over the past few weeks we’ve seen an increase in the amount of rain. As we all know, rain almost always equates to mold problems.
Why is Fall Season Mold Season
The changing color of leaves may be a beautiful sight for those living in Quincy and the rest of the South Shore, but Fall season also means a lot of plant matter decay — and mold thrives on decaying organic matter.
There are three key environmental factors mold needs to grow and survive: Moisture, a dark place, and a food source. With an influx in rain lately, moisture is not a problem as it was during the summer months. As we continue to lose sunlight, there are more places for mold to thrive within our homes.
The weather is also getting colder, which means families are spending more and more time indoors where we are often exposed to poorly circulated and stale air.
