Mold Prevention Tips for Your Homes and Businesses

Mold Prevention Tips for Your Homes and Businesses

According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), ” There is no practical way to eliminate all mold and mold spores in the indoor environment; the way to control indoor mold growth is to control moisture.

Here are six tips to help keep mold at bay:

  • Act quickly when a water leak or spill occurs by ensuring wet or damp materials or areas are dried within 24 – 48 hours, as this in most cases, will prevent the growth of mold.
  • Keep indoor humidity low (ideally 30 – 50%).
  • Moisture-generating sources should have vents to the outside.
  • Keep areas in homes and offices well-ventilated – open windows on dry days to let fresh air blow in.
  • Avoid storing items in damp places.
  • Direct water away from buildings by ensuring that the ground around your homes and offices are sufficiently sloped away from the foundation.
