How to Prevent Mold Growth at Home

4/24/2018 (Permalink)

Mold growing in moist, damp, hard to reach areas.

From white mold to black mold, having these kinds of problems are way more common than you think. Yes, dealing with all the bacteria and potential diseases these things bring can be hard, but there are ways to prevent them.

Mold grows in areas where there’s moisture or unwanted condensation . This means, wherever there’s a leak, a broken pipe, or a humid place in your house, it’s potential a great spot for mold growth.

Prevent mold growth by keeping all areas of your house properly ventilated and dry. Take a moment to do a quick inspection of your house and recognize the places that need to be checked immediately.

Make sure whatever unwanted wet area is dried immediately; same goes for ventilating any area of your house that could potentially hold moisture and grow black mold. Remember, mold grows in moist/humid places, which can be easily avoided by keeping everything dry and ventilated.

Check your floor tiles to make sure they’re fine, under your sink, repair all broken leaking pipes, keep your bedroom ventilated at all times and keep and eye for dark/humid places at home… Just by doing that, you can easily prevent mold growth. If you notice excessive moisture, or have any bad odors that you cant explain, give us a call to schedule a free inspection!
