Mold. The word is enough to make a person cringe.
Mold can grow anywhere: on carpet, clothing, food, paper, and even in places you can't see, such as the backside of drywall.
So what can you do if your concerned about mold growing in your home? The best approach is preventing mold before it becomes a problem. The key to mold prevention is simple: moisture control.
You can't mold-proof you home, but you can make it mold-resistant. Listed below are some tips to prevent mold growth.
- Mold can't grow without moisture, so tackle wet areas right away.
-Monitor humidity indoors, keeping the humidity between 30-60 percent.
-Clean or repair roof gutters. Having the gutters full or damaged can cause a roof leak that results to mold growth.
