Here at Coastal Air Assessments, we know all about mold and how it grows. We also know how frustrating it is to deal with this unsightly and unsafe substance, so we’ve put together this list of tips to try for preventing mold growth in your home that any mold specialist should recommend.
- Don’t let water linger. Standing water is sure to attract mold, especially in already damp areas such as your crawlspace or bathroom. Take care of water that’s accumulated in wet, dark places, and make sure to clean up and wash wet items, such as bath towels.
- Keep an eye on your home’s humidity levels. A certain amount of humidity in your home is great for the wellbeing of you and your family, but too much of it can become a problem. A mold specialist will tell you how important it is to make sure that any excess moisture is taken care of to prevent mold growth, so if you’re worried about excess moisture in your home, consider purchasing a home dehumidifier.
- Hire professional services when necessary. Sometimes mold growth happens even when you do everything you can to prevent it. In cases like these, it’s always best to reach out to a professional mold specialist to help you locate any problem areas and recommend the next best steps for eliminating the growth and preventing it from spreading.
