10 Things You Should Know

 
  1. Health risks and symptoms associated with mold exposures include allergies, asthma, sinusitis and other respiratory complaints.
  2. Mold is found in both the indoor and outdoor environments. If you want to prevent unhealthy build-up of mold you have to control the moisture levels in your home.
  3. If mold becomes a problem in your home or business, you must take steps to immediately eliminate the mold and all sources of moisture.
  4. All indoor plumbing leaks, condensation problems and water proofing issues must be corrected to prevent unwanted moisture.
  5. Indoor humidity levels must be kept below 55%. Take steps to vent dryers, bathrooms, and other moisture-generating sources to the outside. Use dehumidifiers and air conditioners; be sure to increase ventilation and use exhaust fans whenever cooking, dishwashing, and cleaning.
  6. Clean and dry any moist or wet furnishings and building materials within 24-48 hours to prevent the growth of mold.
  7. Take care to clean mold off hard surfaces with water and detergent; make sure the surface is dried completely. Consider replacing porous materials such as ceiling tiles that show signs of mold.
  8. The proper use of insulation to prevent the build-up of condensation will reduce moisture issues.
  9. In areas where there may be a constant moisture problem such as bathroom floors, basement floors or indoor/outdoor rooms, do not install carpeting as it can harbor moisture.
  10. Molds are found almost anywhere; they can grow on almost any substance if moisture is present. Molds can grow on paper, carpet, wood, and foods.
