Mold Prevention Services in Michigan

Mold Prevention Services in Michigan

There are homeowners who have had many unpleasant memories whenever they venture down into their basement or crawl space, or they may be in a bad mood when they enter their kitchen, or bathroom, and are overwhelmed with the musty, damp smell of mold. On a whole, mold is an unfortunate and sometimes frustrating problem to have, as it can potentially ruin your health and can be a frustrating headache to overcome.

In order for mold to grow in your home, it needs a food source and moisture. Unfortunately, we can't control what mold eats, because it happens to feed on drywall, wood and other core building materials. Instead, we turn to what we can control, and that is moisture. By manipulating and controlling moisture levels, we can prevent mold from appearing in your home.

No Moisture, No Mold

To fully grow, mold requires two days, so it's best to clean up any damp areas as soon as they are spotted, and dry them completely.

Say No to Water Leaks

It won't help that other moisture problems, such as water leaks, can manifest in all sorts of ways. It could be excess moisture from a burst pipe, leaky roof, it could be in the wall or it could even come from your shower. It's a much better idea to scan and plug up all the leaks you can find.

Halt Condensation

Condensation is liquid that forms on cold surfaces. Once the water vapor cools and becomes liquid, a good way to fully lower condensation is to keep your room's temperature fairly warm. A good way for this to happen is by getting insulation installed, and by placing covers on your metal pipes. As long as humidity is kept reasonably low, there is an excellent chance that you won't be seeing condensation buildup on your pipes.

Aside from damp, dark spaces, there are species of mold that grow from humidity alone -- provided that the heat is constantly on high. Mold needs humidity levels that are above 55% to grow. A great solution to keeping humidity low is to have good ventilation.

When it's hot outside, it's ggood to keep the windows open because this is the time when humidity levels can be at their lowest. But when it's raining, it's a good idea to keep your windows firmly closed. It's also a great idea to have an exhaust fan running whenever a situation causes steam - such as inside the kitchen when cooking, or in the shower when taking a bath. 

Dry Wet Clothes

Moisture problems can even begin from small things, such as leaving your wet clothes in a pile. When wet clothes are piled on top of one another, this can also be enough of a damp, humid environment to grow mold, so it's advised to not leave them lying around.

To fully dry your clothes, it's still best to use an outdoor clothesline, because the indoor type won't dry them as quickly and the moisture from the clothes will just travel into the air, which is what you don't want.

If you have an indoor clothes dryer, it's a good idea to exhaust the air outdoors and to keep the room well-ventilated, since it's where you will keep your clothes to dry.
