Keep Your Home Mold FreeJanuary 26, 2010
- The best mold prevention is elbow grease. Wipe down bathroom walls, get under sinks, vacuum weekly and use cleaning products that discourage mold growth.
- Ventilation fans should be in good working order. Ventilation fans were created to get moisture away from steamy bathrooms, so make sure yours are doing a good job.
- Keep gutters clean. A buildup of dead leaves is a great place for mold to thrive. Clear them out regularly and make sure your property has good drainage away from the house.
- Insulate ducts. Heated or cooled air going through ducts can form condensation if they are not insulated. Any moisture buildup will cause mold to grow which will eventually affect the air quality of your home.
