How to Prevent House Mold

House mold is one of those things that makes everyone shudder at the thought. There has been enough information shared to know that mold can be a health hazard and it is certainly unpleasant to deal with. There is a certain number of mold spores present in every home, but if you want to prevent an excessive level of house mold, here are a few tips to help:

  • Regularly inspect the roof. Minor roof leaks can go unnoticed for quite a while, and they provide the perfect environment for mold to grow long before you notice leaks inside the home. You can inspect by shining a flashlight around in the attic during or right after it rains. A professional roofing inspector should be called after any signs of storm damage to check for leaks.
  • Control humidity. The best way to keep humidity down in your home is to have an air conditioning system and thermostat that gauges humidity and runs the unit longer when necessary to keep it to an acceptable level. The lower the humidity, the better. If you have a damp crawlspace or basement that is adding humidity in your home, you should have this remedied.
  • Fix leaks promptly. If you notice a faucet is dripping or a pipe or connection is leaking, take care of the repair as promptly as possible. Even small leaks can invite house mold to begin actively growing.
  • Ensure proper ventilation. What many do not know is that the V in HVAC is for ventilation. If your home is not properly ventilated, moisture issues can develop, which is all that is needed for house mold to grow. An HVAC professional can assess your home to determine if all is well in this regard.
