The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that we spend 90% of our time indoors.
Being informed about the causes and risks of mold, as well as how to best remove and prevent it can help you successfully deal with mold problems.
Mold is a common nuisance in many homes and properties. In the past few decades, people have been using air purifiers to get rid of mold allergens.
Your home may harbor a large mold colony without you even knowing. However, you can expect mold growth if you have a water problem in your home, such as leaks, high humidity or condensation.
Mold can easily grow in an environment that is rich in moisture and organic material, and with temperatures between 32 and 120 degrees.
Crawl spaces are prone to mold growth due to the high levels of moisture and humidity in these areas.
Mold grows in the attic when there is a moisture problem.
In the cold winter months, mold tends to grow in homes with poor ventilation, elevated humidity, and unresolved water leaks.
An important aspect of your winter preparation is making sure that your roof is in good condition before the cold season begins.
With winter on the way, it’s time to make early preparations to your home for the season.
