a) I live in a semi-D, far below six stories... windows open all the time... no mold problem.
b) I always open my bathroom after a shower so that the moisture can dissipate... then again, my windows are open... see above.
c) My pillow cases and mattresses are not wrapped, but then again my house is open air.
Bottom line: An open environment is most conducive to non-mold. Do things to make you place moldy.
1) Keep it closed, with no air circulation.
2) Allow the humidity from showers and cooking to infect you place.
Do agree with one thing. If you have a mold problem, get it professionally killed.
My tips are generally for the masses,
To have a Mold infection, you will need 2 things to come together,
Most moisture in a house or apartment will come from the bathroom, after a shower, thus the closing of bathroom doors.
and moisture build up cause by condensation, like the daily rain that we experienced 1-2 months ago. or if 1 room is too cold, the adjacent room will have the moisture.
Hanging your laundry to dry in your home will increase the moisture too.
2, Introduction of mold
This can come from the trees outside your home, thus the 6 floor and below point.
It can also be from the furniture, especially from the raw wood or compressed "wood" backings.
Footware will also introduce mold into your home, if you have walked over grass / soil and walked in your home with them on, Placing the footware in your wardrobes can infect your wardrobe too.
Once these 2 things get together, your mold problem will start.
