Controlling moisture in your Elkhart home is the key to reducing mold growth

2/15/2017 (Permalink)

Molds are a natural part of the environment, they can be found everywhere, indoors and outdoors. Moisture is necessary for mold growth.

The best way prevent mold growth in your Elkhart county home is to control the moisture. The indoor humidity levels inside a home should be between 30-60%. To help maintain those levels it is ideal to make sure to vent all moisture producing sources to the outside. Items such as bath fans, dryers, and the exhaust fan above your stove. Adding insulation can help reduce condensation.

Fix any water leaks or intrusions into your home such as fondation leaks, windows, and pipes. The use of air conditioning and dehumidifiers will also help reduce the moisture levels in your home. 

Make sure to clean and dry any wet materials or furnishings within 24-48 hours to reduce the risk of mold growth.
