Mold Issues In the Winter? Believe It or Not, It’s One of Its Favorite Seasons!

Most homeowners believe that mold issues are a springtime situation, but in all reality winter is one of the best times of the year for mold to grow. Mold is naturally found all around us, in the air we breathe, outside and inside of our homes. The issue arises when mold begins to reproduce and their spores grow at a rapid rate. Mold can be killed most effectively by hiring a home remediation service that will eliminate it. Here are some pointers for mold prevention at home.

Excessive exposure to mold-contaminated materials can cause adverse health effects including, but not limed to:

  • Throat irritation
  • Respiratory problems (wheezing, difficulty breathing, chest tightness & coughing)
  • Sneezing fits
  • Severe eye irritation including  red, watery itchy eyes
  • Intense nasal and sinus congestion
  • Severe fungal infection

How to keep mold at bay in your home:

  • Air circulation – make sure that the air in your home is being diverted by an exhaust fan when cooking, showering and washing dishes.
  • Clean it up – keep all areas of your home free of piled debris.
  • Wet basements – always replace cracked or defective mortar in your basement and make sure that you have proper outside drainage going away from your home.
  • Your crawlspace – proper ventilation and expelling humid air out of this area will avoid mold growth.
  • Insulate your pipes – make sure that your pipes in your home are properly insulated to avoid a leak that will cause rapid mold growth.
  • Condensation – if you see condensation on your walls, windows or pipes dry out the areas and determine what may be causing it.
  • Seals – check the seals on your doors and windows so they are in good working order.
  • Gutters – make sure that your gutters are always clean and free of debris.
  • Roof – if you have a damaged or leaking roof, get it fixed immediately and tarp or tent it until it can be properly remedied.
