5 things to know about mold

1/25/2022 (Permalink)

Here are 5 things you should know about mold: 

1: Eliminating "all" mold

There is actually no way to eliminate all mold in your environment. Mold spores are a natural occurrence and they can not be removed. The only time they are not good is when they're introduced to a moist, dark environment such as a basement or attic, for example. 

2: Sources of moisture 

It's important that you fix all leaks as soon as you spot them to prevent and reduce the possibility of mold growth. 

3: Reduce and monitor indoor humidity

If you keep your indoor humidity at around 30-60% you can decrease the potential of mold growth. 

  • Have vents in your bathrooms and exhaust fans in your kitchens
  • Use dehumidifiers when necessary 

4: Cleaning up spills and leaks 

Clean up and dry any spills or leaks right away to prevent mold growth. 

5: Carpeting 

If there is an area of your home that's prone to excessive moisture, it's best not to install carpeting there, it can be a host for mold growth.
