  Five Ways to Prevent Mold


Five Ways to Prevent Mold
Indoor mold can cause health related problems and is a costly, time-consuming problem to fix. Prevention is a homeowner's best weapon; here are five of the most common recommendations given by industry experts.
1.Monitor the home's humidity level.
Mold thrives on moisture. A common source of moisture contributing to mold growth is the bathroom shower. Daily showering significantly increases humidity in the home. Prevent this problem by running the bathroom exhaust fan for twenty minutes after bathing.
2. Dust frequently.
The organic debris found in dust clumps around the home can contribute to mold problems. Not only does this debris feed the mold, but it also helps the mold spread throughout the home. Consistent house cleaning will help prevent widespread mold problems.
3. Clean with bleach.
One of the best do-it-yourself methods to preventing mold is to clean problem areas with a solution of one part bleach to ten parts water. Bleach is a powerful cleaner that can effectively kill small areas of mold before it develops into a larger problem.
4. Keep firewood outside.
Many people keep firewood indoors. However, most firewood contains mold, and storing it indoors is a step in the wrong direction for homeowners who want to stop mold-related problems.
5. Prevent water damage.
Many indoor mold problems begin with a leaky roof. An aging, weathered roof may allow water to enter the home. Water can damage attics, walls and ceilings, and homeowners may not be aware of the problem until it is too late. Mold thrives and spreads in water-damaged areas that are not properly dried and maintained. Prevent water damage by making sure that your home's roof is properly maintained.
