Prevention of Mold allergy:
Similar to pollen counts, mold counts may suggest the types and relative
quantities of fungi present at a certain time and place. For several reasons,
however, these counts probably cannot be used as a constant guide for daily
activities. One reason is that the number and types of spores actually present
in the mold count may have changed considerably in 24 hours because weather and
spore dispersal are directly related. Many of the common allergenic molds are of
the dry spore type--they release their spores during dry, windy weather. Other
fungi need high humidity, fog, or dew to release their spores. Although rain
washes many larger spores out of the air, it also causes some smaller spores to
be shot into the air.
In addition to the effect of day-to-day weather changes on mold counts, spore
populations may also differ between day and night. Day favors dispersal by dry
spore types and night favors wet spore types. (Source: excerpt from Something in the Air Airborne Allergens: NIAID)
