Ten Things You Should Know about Mold

Posted on April 7, 2016 at 11:20 AM

  

              Moisture Control is the Key.


Things You Should Know about Mold

1. Potential health effects and symptoms associated with mold exposures include allergic reactions, asthma and other respiratory complaints.

2. There is no practical way to eliminate all mold and mold spores in the indoor environment; the way to control indoor mold growth is to control moisture.

3. If mold is a problem in your home or school, you must clean up the mold and eliminate sources of moisture.

4. Fix the source of the water problem or leak to prevent mold growth.

5. Reduce indoor humidity (to 30-60%) to decrease mold growth by:

o Venting bathrooms, dryers and other moisture-generating sources to the outside

o Using air conditioners and de-humidifiers

o Increasing ventilation

o Using exhaust fans whenever cooking, dishwashing and cleaning

6. Clean and dry any damp or wet building materials and furnishings within 24-48 hours to prevent mold growth.

7. Clean mold off hard surfaces with water and detergent, and dry completely. Absorbent materials such as ceiling tiles, that are moldy, may need to be replaced.

8. Prevent condensation: Reduce the potential for condensation on cold surfaces (i.e., windows, piping, exterior walls, roof, or floors) by adding insulation.

9. In areas where there is a perpetual moisture problem, do not install carpeting (i.e., by drinking fountains, by classroom sinks, or on concrete floors with leaks or frequent condensation).

10. Molds can be found almost anywhere; they can grow on virtually any substance, providing moisture is present. There are molds that can grow on wood, paper, carpet, and foods.

Thank you for helping me learn more about mold. It's good to know that if there is a mold problem it's important to clean it up while eliminating the sources of moisture. I'm kind of interested to learn if a remediation team could recommend ways to prevent this moisture from happening in those spots. https://www.dalmationcleaningservices.com/mold-removal

I'm curious to find out what blog system you're utilizing?

I'm experiencing some small security problems with my
latest website and I would like to find something more safeguarded.
Do you have any solutions? http://ycantho.com/qa/member.php?u=1026544
