Though mold has extremely negative connotations surrounding it, it’s actually all around us. It even plays an essential role in maintaining the natural environment we live in. However, mold in the walls, carpets, flooring or ceilings of a home or business should be removed immediately. When left unchecked, mold can grow to cause serious health and structural related issues and problems, sometimes even fatal problems.
How do I control mold growth in my home?
Fix any moisture problems in your home:
•First of all, stop all water leaks. Repair leaking roofs and plumbing fixtures etc. Move water away from concrete slabs and your basement walls.
•Try to increase air circulation within your home, especially along the inside of exterior walls. Also ventilate with fresh air from outside. Provide warm air to all areas of your property. Move large objects away from the inside of exterior walls (just a few inches) to provide good air circulation.
•Install and use exhaust fans in your bathrooms, as well as the kitchens, and laundry rooms.
•Ventilate and insulate your attic and crawl spaces. Cover earth floors in crawl spaces with heavy plastic if possible.
•Clean and dry water damaged carpets, clothing, bedding, and upholstered furniture within 24 to 48 hours, or consider removing and replacing damaged furnishings.
•Vacuum and clean your home regularly for a mold free property.
