Mold clean up companies are on the scene immediately after abnormal mold growth is discovered. Within every home there is a natural and normal amount of mold that will grow. Inevitably, specific areas of your house will be more subject to mold growth, and an abundance of it can be detrimental to your health. With the sudden COVID-19 outbreak and country-wide quarantine, keeping your home or apartment healthy is paramount. Luckily, preventing mold development is extremely doable. By utilizing some best practices, your home will maintain a healthy amount of moisture and mold.

1.) Keep humidity levels down.

Mold thrives in a moist environment. Actively monitoring the moisture levels in your home and maintaining a consistent level of dryness is critical. Consider purchasing a dehumidifier and running it often as a viable solution to controlling your home’s environment. Areas like the bathroom are subject to lots of moisture and water that have the potential to produce the most mold. Keep the bathroom window open as you bath and try to run the fan. Hot showers produce steam that rises to accumulate on the walls and ceiling. If left untouched, it will eventually develop into mold.

2.) Keep an eye on your plumbing.

Random leakage occurs in your home's plumbing when you least expect it. Try to perform routine checks on your home’s plumbing systems to ensure that everything is functioning properly. Areas that are not regularly maintained tend to become hotbeds for hazardous mold growth.

3.) Be cognizant of wet clothes and towels.

In the summer when you return from the pool or the beach, make sure that you don’t leave wet towels on the floor. There are many cases where towels and laundry are left unattended for extended periods of time and spurs of mold patches begin to grow as a result. Articles of clothing that are left outside to dry are sometimes forgotten about and end up become a catalyst for a mold bed.

4.) Utilize exhaust fans and vents.

Every bathroom has exhaust fans that are intended to ventilate moisture out of the room. More often than not, these are not turned on when people use the shower. Try to get in the habit of constantly turning this on when you bath.
