Constant exposure to household mould has been known to cause unpleasant odours, health issues and property damage. Don’t risk it! While it might not be possible to make your home mould proof there are several easy ways to build up its mould resistance. Here are some mould prevention tips to get you started.
Tips For Household Mould Prevention
- Identify sources of mould and eliminate them: If you don’t fix problems like leaks in the basement, condensation on the windows, broken pipes etc. the mould is very likely to keep coming back.
- Dry out wet areas immediately: Damp and wet conditions help mould grow and thrive.
- Install the right ventilation to discourage mould growth: Specifically in your bathroom, kitchen, laundry room, and any other high-moisture areas. Ensure that it vents outside and not indoors. Use dehumidifiers and air conditioners to reduce humidity.
- Choose mould-resistant products: Especially when it comes to drywall and paint for high moisture areas mentioned above.
- Monitor indoor humidity: A moisture meter from the local hardware store is quite effective. The EPA recommends keeping it between 30 and 60 percent.
- Direct water away from your home: This will prevent basement leaks and flooding which is a major source of mould. Ensure proper grading: Also make sure that downspouts, eavestroughs and drains are clear and functioning properly
- Keep mould off household plants: Wash them with soapy water.
- Improve air flow in your home: This prevents moisture build up. Let the fresh air in, open doors between rooms, move furniture away from walls, and open doors to closets that may be colder than the rooms they are in.
