In this blog we will share five ways mold can be prevented this Summer. 

1. Clean Areas That Acculmuate Moisture and Water

Regularly cleaning your home is important, but cleaning wet areas and wet spots is even more important. If wet area, spots and moisture are allowed to lingered, it can lead to mold growth. Being proactive and observant when cleaning your home will go a long way. 

2. Check For Leaks 

Leaks can happen at any time and usually are not noticed right away. Try to routinely check your floors and pipes for leaks. Once water leaks to your floors, mold growth will not be far behind. Not to mention, it can also be a challenge to clean up. 

3. Manage Humidity Levels 

Summertime is notorious for humid days. When the humidity is high, so is the chance of mold growth. Do whatever you can to manage humidity levels. Humidity levels can be managed with fans and dehumidifiers.

Turning on your air conditioning on a hot summer day is useful but it is important not to overuse your air conditioning system. Not only is it bad for your air conditioning, but using your air conditioning too much can create excessive condensation. Once condensation occurs, mold can start to form. 

5. Do Not Forget To Dry Your Bathroom 

Mold growth in bathrooms is quite common and often due to neglect. If you have an exhaust fan in the bathroom, make sure to turn it on everytime you shower and leave it on for about ten minutes after you shower.
