Here are a few things you can do to reduce the risk of getting mold in your house
Mold can be a very serious problem and can take over an entire house in a very short time. Here are a few tips to help greatly reduce your chances of having mold in your home.
Excess moisture is a contributing factor to mold so keeping things dry is important. Drying the shower or bath tub after use is a good habit to get into. Also running the exhaust fan while showering to keep humidity levels down.
Basements are another area for concern. They are usually cool and damp areas where mold can flourish. Running a dehumidifier that is big enough for the space can reduce the risk by removing moisture from the air.
It is also a good idea to avoid storing things right against basement walls. Leaving a few inches for air movement will help in drying up any dampness from the walls.
If at any time you do see any mold growth in your home remember it can be very dangerous and should be taken care of by professionals. Call SERVPRO of New Center/Highland Park at 313-379-6768
