How to Prevent Mold In Your Home

Florida residents know that year-round humidity is no joke. Not only does excess moisture make your home an unpleasant place to be, but it can also lead to the growth of mold. A serious allergen for many, mold can cause sneezing and watery eyes and even exacerbate preexisting conditions like asthma. Fortunately, there are steps homeowners can take to deter mold growth in the first place. Here are some of air conditioning service provider, Del-Air’s, suggestions for preventing mold in your home:

  • Identify problem areas in your home. The fact is that mold grows best in damp, cool areas of the house. To stop mold infestations in their early stages, take time to inspect wood products, windows, and pipes as well as any area that has suffered flooding.
  • Dry wet areas immediately. Is your roof leaking? Did you suffer a recent flood? If you want to prevent mold, it’s crucial that you take steps to dry leaks and wet areas ASAP.
  • Use proper ventilation to prevent moisture. Laundry areas, kitchens, and bathrooms offer a perfect breeding ground for mold. For best results, control humidity levels by improving airflow and ventilation in these regions.
  • Use mold-resistant products. Mold-resistant drywall and cleaning products like bleach, ammonia, and hydrogen peroxide are all great for preventing toxic growth in the home.
  • Monitor indoor humidity. Your air conditioner plays a key role in battling excess moisture in the home. To protect your property from mold, arrange for a professional AC inspection before the start of the summer season. You may also want to purchase a home dehumidifier, which can help prevent mold from replicating.

This was my first experience with Del-Air and they were prompt, professional, and knowledgeable. They were able to get me in on the same day for a maintenance visit, which I wasn’t expecting but very much appreciated. The office staff was pleasant and so was the technician that came out to service my air conditioners. Thanks…
