How you can prevent mold from rotting your home
Mold can grow almost anywhere, and your home is no exception. Here a few simple tips to help protect your home and stop mold growth before it starts.
- Monitor humidity indoors: The EPA recommends between 30-60% humidity indoors to bring the chances of mold growth to a minimum.
- Direct water away from the house: The ground around the home should be sloped away from the house to prevent water from leaking in.
- Improve air flow inside: A fan of air condition can help keep the air circulating, reducing the chance of high humidity and lowers temperatures.
- Fix leaks: Regularly check on plumbing and appliances to insure there are no leaks undetected. Also check roof and gutters to make sure they are not leaking as well.
