Prevent Mold Growth in you home

I don’t know about you, but I like being healthy.  I like it when my family is healthy.  I want to create an environment which gives my family the best chance to stay healthy.  Keeping your home humid in the winter is a great way to stay warm and save money, but in the summer you do not want to create an environment which can allow mold to grow.

If there is mold in your home, your family risks these possible symptoms:

  • Allergic reactions.
  • Flu-like symptoms.
  • Increased severity of asthma.

How do you minimize or prevent mold growth?

  • Consider installing a dehumidifier. They remove the moisture from your home which takes away the water component for mold growth.
  • Do not leave your Air Conditioner off for long periods of time.  In humid climates moisture levels can become quite high in buildings.What else can you do for keeping away mold growth in your home?HVAC systems that are notwell maintained could allow mold to grow. Please do the following:

    Hope this helps keep your family healthier and more comfortable in your home.
