Mold can be toxic and very dangerous if certain types (or excess amounts) are impacting your home. However, there are several things you can do to help protect your home from being impacted by harmful mold. Parts 1 & 2 noted several tips to prevent mold from growing in your home; here are a few more considerations when it comes to halting mold growth: Key Ways to Prevent Mold Growth
Install & Clean Bathroom Fans
You can prevent mold growth in your bathroom by installing a bathroom fan. Bathroom fans ventilate moisture-producing areas, like the shower and tub area. This means they help remove humidity from the air, which helps prevent mold growth. Bathroom fans are inexpensive and easy to install, all you need is an outlet near your ceiling or wall (or both), and a switch that turns the fan on and off when you need it. If you don’t want to mess around with electrical work, many models come pre-wired so all you have to do is mount them where they belong! It’s also important to ensure your bathroom fans are kept clean as dust and debris can accumulate, and moisture can build up and cause mold damage. Contact the pros for bathroom fan cleaning services.
Keep Things Dry to Prevent Mold Growth
Mold is a fungus that grows in moist areas, and it can spread quickly if you don’t take steps to prevent it. You can keep your home free of mold by keeping things clean and dry. This means cleaning with soap and water, getting rid of standing water, fixing leaks, and making sure the humidity stays below 50%. If you see signs that mold has already started growing on walls or floors (mold looks like black spots), it’s important to contact the pros for mold removal services. Throw out any porous items like carpeting or furniture that have been exposed to moisture long enough for mold growth.
