We’ve talked before about the importance of keeping your bathroom mold-free, but the simple fact is that – especially in a humid state like Florida – mold can grow in any room of your house. Since that’s the case, it’s important to take steps to control mold growth everywhere.
The key to fighting the growth of mold is to control the moisture in your home. Typically, having a humidity level of 60 percent or less is required. Simple humidity level monitors are available to help you keep an eye on things. You may need to keep a dehumidifier on hand for particularly moist rooms in your house. If you have leaks or old pipes, it’s good to repair or replace elements that are introducing moisture to your home, even if they’re small. Before you put things away, like dishes or clothes, make sure they’re completely dry. Simple efforts like these can do a lot to help you prevent mold growth in your home.
