Understanding Mold

10/8/2018 (Permalink)

Mold is a hot topic these days. Although molds have been on the Earth for millions of years, there have been recent studies linking mold to a variety of health conditions. Mold is found indoors and out and can attach itself to clothing, bags and pets and be carried indoors. Mold can also travel indoors through open windows and doors, as well as through your HVAC system. Mold requires moisture to grow and can flourish in certain ideal conditions.

How You Can Control Mold Growth In Your Home

  • Humidity Levels – Again, mold loves moisture. Control the moisture/humidity control the mold.
