Recommendation for preventing Mold

I have learned about some natural plants that help to get rid of allergies and dust. Is there any plant that can help to prevent mold and germs to grow in my home?

    Hi, Sarah, and welcome! Houseplants can actually be a source of mold, so watering plants properly is important.

    You can find good tips on preventing mold here at .

    And in the blog post , it specifically talks about mold and house plants and watering.

    Agree, doubt Any plant preventing mold. 

    Some mold which does not smell and can’t avoided prob not a big issue. mold inspectors can find hidden places but level may not be v high  

    Dark, damp and poor ventilation attracts mold, is a bigger issue. Like some of the basements.

     Control water leak, replace moldy bathroom, lighten, brighten basement, Anti mold paint, humidity less than 45, A/C   

    if smell like mild it is obvious mold and if does’t then less likely

    I use eucalyptus and tea tree essential oils, I have read they have anti-mold and anti-fungal properties. Some essential oils cintain VOCs so I try to buy the high quality types and diffuse them in the air with water and a snall diffuser that I got at Bed Bath and Beyond.
