Health Tips - Mold

 
Mold

Mold is one of the most common allergens and is stressful to your overall health. It grows rapidly in damp, enclosed environments and on damp fabrics. It grows in carpet pile, wallpaper paste and on wallpaper.

The Main Method of Beating Mold is to Minimize Dampness in Your Environment

  • Ensure that your walls and roof have no leaks.
  • Paint walls instead of using wallpaper. Before painting basement walls made of concrete, waterproof first. There are specialized sealants for this and generally speaking, the toxicity levels are much lower than they used to be. But whatever the toxicity level, it is generally healthier than having mold.
  • Replace carpets with wood floors, vinyl, ceramic tile or terrazzo.
  • Keep bathrooms and laundry rooms well aired. Spread out towels and washcloths for fast drying. Dry clothes as soon as they are taken from the washer.
  • Regularly inspect your home for mold growth.
  • In humid conditions, use air conditioning or a dehumidifier.
