There are a number of issues homeowners may face in their homes. Having mold in your house, for example, can threaten your home’s integrity and your family’s well-being. The structural stability of wooden supports and other parts of your house can be affected by mold growth, and you and your loved ones can get very sick from those same mold spores.
Prevention is key, so here are some of the best tips for preventing mold in your house.
- Keep things dry. Standing water or damp areas of the home should be addressed as soon as you notice them. Mold grows in the presence of moisture, so if you have a leaky pipe or damp carpeting, take care of those issues immediately.
- Control humidity levels. Excess humidity invites mold in the house, but there are things to do to control this humidity. For example, a dehumidifier can control the level of moisture in your air, increasing the indoor air quality in the process. You can also turn on vent fans in the kitchen or bathroom to help ventilate the area.
