Here are 4 ways to prevent mold in your home.
1. Find problem areas and fix them. If your home has a basement, that's definitely the place to start. Does the basement flood? When it does, is it cleaned and dried out thoroughly? Mold can feed off of organic components of drywall and carpet and keep growing out of sight until you start to smell it.
4. Know your climate. Dealing with mold in Florida is much different than dealing with it in New Mexico. Higher temperatures and humidity will create mold faster and in more places, so be aware of how the local weather is helping or hurting your efforts to maintain a mold free home.
