3 Ways To Keep Mold Out Of Your Home

Posted in Blog on January 7th, 2014 by Hunter Adams

Mold growing in homes and businesses can cause wheezing, skin or eye irritation, stuffed nasal passages and even fever and shortness of breath for those who are sensitive to it, according to CDC.gov. If you are purchasing a new home or you suspect that mold may be growing in your home, you should contact a professional to perform an inspection of the property. Once mold has been detected and removed, there are some steps you can take to keep more mold from growing:

1. Keep humidity low by using dehumidifiers and air conditioning units during warm months. Avoid the use of humidifiers or swamp coolers.

2. Ensure proper ventilation throughout your home, especially in the kitchen and bathrooms.

3. Remove carpets from bathrooms and areas that have flooded.
