6/21/2019 (Permalink)

Preventing mold, whether is be in your home or in your business, is always a step in the right direction. The trick is, there is one major key to preventing mold in your property: having proper moisture control. Below are a few simple tips: 

1. Unfortunately for you, mold cant be avoided completely. However, you can limit its presence with getting rid of anything damp in your home and making sure temperature control is constant and equal throughout the house. If it costs money upfront to do a little remediation such as waterproofing, its most likely worth it in the long run.

2. Closely monitor the humidity levels in your home or office, especially in the summer. Changes in temperature throughout the days and weeks is a primary catalyst for the formation of mold. Humidity is recommended to be a certain level by the EPA. They suggest that it should be in between the range of 30-60% in any room. Falling within these parameters will prove to be beneficial.

3. Avoid external sources of water that may be sneakily placed around your property. Avoid any place where water can collect (especially rain water near the sides of your property) and remove or alter any area that may cause an issue like this.
