We talk a lot about preventing mold in new construction homes. Heck, we’re experts at it here in Kalispell, Whitefish, Missoula and all the surrounding areas.
But how do you prevent it once the house is done?
There are simple steps you can take to prevent mold growth in your home.
1. Have exhaust fans running (bathrooms and kitchens) – High humidity contributes to mold growth, get that humidity out of there!
2. Keep water away from your house – make sure your landscaping is actually sloped away from your house, make sure your gutters flow freely.
3. Run your air conditioner – AC units remove moisture from the air!
4. Clean up leaks and spills quickly – letting water penetrate only feeds potential mold growth, get it dry as soon as possible!
There are other things you can do, obviously, but these are easy and easy to remember. Contact the Mold Wranglers if you’ve already got mold, we’re here to help.
