1. Don’t mow the lawn, delegate. If you can’t let someone else mow the lawn take an antihistamine before mowing.

2. Keep your grass short so that it won’t pollinate. (Grass pollinates through the air.)

3. Check your local pollen count every day. High grass pollen count days are not a good time to outdoors so avoid outdoor activities. As you can see, we have had a lot of wet weather recently, so grass pollen counts have been low.

Whether it’s lurking under a leaky sink, around window ledges, seeping through drywall or spreading under basement carpet, it needs to go. So how do you get rid of mold?
