Protect your home from Mold
Although you may not be able to completely eliminate the presence of mold spores entering your home from the natural environment, there are many ways you can limit or prevent mold growth in your home to protect it.
- Keep your HVAC system maintained and change your air filter regularly, which will prevent the buildup of mold spores in your ducts and prevent the circulation of spores through your indoor air.
- When remodeling or redecorating, consider using products such as paints and flooring with antimicrobial properties, which makes them less susceptible to mold growth, even if there is a flood or leak.
- Reduce the amount of moisture in your home by running ventilation fans while bathing and using your air conditioner to extract moisture from the air on hot, humid summer days.
- Have your roof inspected at least once a year to identify damage or leaks and repair them immediately, as roof damage can otherwise go unnoticed and lead to extensive water damage and mold growth before the issue is caught and addressed.
