Reducing Mold In The Home -- 7 Things To Keep In Mind

April 26, 2012 | Blog

Whether your house is 1 or 100 years old, chances are that it has mold growing somewhere. Although there’s no need to be too alarmed, as this is typical in almost any structure and climate, it’s an issue that you may want to address sooner than later. Prevention plays a large part when it comes to reducing mold in the home.

Spring is the ideal season to seek out and destroy the mold in your house. The following list is meant to assist you in doing so by providing important advice and information.

7 Things To Keep In Mind About Mold

  1. Mold thrives on moisture. Therefore, maintaining a dry interior is mandatory in order to keep it under control. If your air conditioner isn’t doing a good job of removing moisture from your home, consider installing The AC-Enhancer or a whole-house unit for humidity control. Or if you have specific problem areas get one or more portable dehumidifiers. In our hot and steamy climate, a dehumidifier is definitely something to consider.
  2. If you have a leaky location, whether in the roof or the foundation, fix it. In addition, remove and replace any water-damaged material.
  3. Mold can grow on surfaces such as wood, carpet, paper and foods. Using a disinfectant when cleaning is a good idea; however, you’ll never really get rid of all of the mold in your house.
  4. Mold affects people in different ways, though it can trigger maladies such as asthma and respiratory irritation. Also, allergy symptoms may include nasal congestion, skin rashes, and itchy eyes.
  5. A high-efficiency air filter can remove some of the mold from your air, but make sure you read the label carefully. Some of the cheaper filters don’t remove mold spores from the air.
  6. Sometimes, remediation may be necessary for properly removing and reducing mold in the home. A specialist will ensure a safe, swift and certified approach to solving the problem.
  7. Having your HVAC equipment checked and cleaned regularly is recommended for reducing mold. This includes the ductwork as well.

Great company. Contacted my current AC company to check on my warranty before charging me anything. Saved me a bunch of money and headache if dealing with anything. Would definitely recommend them and use them again.
