Prevent Mold Growth In Your Home
Mold growth in the home can create serious health hazards for your family and eventually lead to the condemnation of your home if the problem is not contained and dealt with quickly. Mold spores can multiply quickly, and can spread through the air in order to contaminate other areas of the home. Even the smallest spot of mold can contain millions of spores that pose a serious health risk. Preventing mold can be as simple as keeping your home clear of the factors that allow for a fertile environment for mold growth.
Prevent Excess Moisture
Mold typically requires 24-48 hours of moisture to begin the growth process. If a material that is prime for mold growth is wet or moist for more than 24 hours, you run a higher risk of mold growing in this area. If your home sustains water damage and you are concerned about the moisture level of your belongings, we recommend hiring a professional service to completely dry out your home.
Another issue that creates large amounts of moisture in the home is condensation. Condensation will form on cold surfaces when water in the air cools and turns into liquid. We recommend reducing the condensation in your home by keeping the temperature a little warmer and properly insulating the surfaces in your home. Condensation leads to excess moisture, which can quickly create a fertile environment for mold growth.
Prevent High Humidity Levels
Humidity is another factor that is involved in mold growth. Many mold species will grow with only humidity and no moisture if the area stays humid for long enough. Humidity levels higher than 55% run a higher risk of mold and mildew growth. We recommend reducing humidity levels in your home by creating proper ventilation systems in every room.
