How Can I Control Mold Growth In My Home?

Mold is definitley a 4-letter word to most people. But not all mold is dangerous. Mold helps to make cheese, fertilize gardens, and speed decaying of garbage and fallen leaves. But mold can become a problem when it starts digesting things we don't want it to digest, such as our house!

So how can you control mold growth in your home so it doesn't become a problem?

Here are a few tips:

  • Keep the humidity level in the house between 40% and 60%.
  • Increase air circulation within your home, especially along the inside of exterior walls, and ventilate with fresh air from outside.
  • Keep a dehumidifier running in the basement.
  • Ventilate and insulate attic and crawl spaces.
  • Install and use exhaust fans in bathrooms, kitchens, and laundry rooms.
  • Regularly check for water leaks and repair them immediately.
  • Install a gutter system that moves water away from concrete slabs and basement walls.
  • Check your roof frequently and repair any leaks found.
  • Cover dirt floors in crawl spaces with heavy plastic.
  • If you experience a water damage, have a professional water damage restoration company repair it within 24 to 48 hours.
