5 Tips to Reduce Spring Mold Allergy Attacks

Though most people are disgusted by mold and work to keep it out of their homes, the sad truth is that the spring season brings along an explosion of the annoying spores that keep us sneezing. The light and persistent rains that visit beginning in March combined with warmer temperatures make spring the No. 1 season for dealing with mold allergies.


This spring, don’t suffer in silence! Take these five tips from our experts at Rightway Waterproofing Co., the leading basement waterproofing company serving Bucks County, to help reduce allergy attacks and rid mold.


  • Invest in a dust mask. Unfortunately, it’s impossible to avoid all sources of mold in the world. For example, wet grass in the spring is a prime habitat for mold-which most of us would have trouble avoiding after rain. Investing in a quality dust mask can help stop you from inhaling spores when doing outdoor work or indoor chores.


  • Think about where you’re headed. Some types of businesses are more habitable to mold than others. Flower shops, antique stores and construction sites are prime spots for mold growth. If you’re headed to one of these locations, remember to bring your allergy medication and a dust mask.


  • Make your bathroom unfriendly to mold. The bathroom, along with the basement, is one of the places in our home that can see a large amount of mold growth. Remember to keep an exhaust fan on or a window open in your bathroom every time you take a shower to prevent mold growth.


  • Move quickly. Speed is the key to preventing mold growth. If you notice a spill, a leak or a dripping pipe, make sure to get it corrected as soon as possible to limit the time that mold has to move in!


  • Mold-proof your basement. A damp basement is a breeding ground for mold. Call our professionals at Rightway Waterproofing Co. to schedule an appointment to learn more about mold remediation services and basement waterproofing.

Debbie, Berwyn

“The day after Hurricane Irene, all of my neighbors basements were filled with water, while mine remained dry! It is wonderful, everything remains dry and the battery backup worked beautifully when my power was out for 2 days. Dry AND quiet, thank you, thank you! Thanks! Debbie, Berwyn”

Doug Smith, Glenside

“All I have to say is that Hurricane Irene was no match for the job that Rightway did for my basement and my father-in-law’s. I had my basement done 5 years ago and we are still bone dry and my father-inlaw’s was done last year and another dry basement… Great job! I highly recommend them for waterproofing and mold remediation.”

-Doug Smith, Glenside


“I’d highly recommend these guys for your basement. My basement has been dry since they installed a sump pump and French drain in June. They offer a competitive price, they get the job done quickly and they stand by their work. Please mention my name if you proceed down the road with these guys.”

“We had our basement waterproofed with Rightway Waterproofing in 2007, after all this time and just getting through Hurricane Irene, we did not get a drop of water in our basement. Rightway Waterproofing did a very good job and we are very satisfied!”
