Preventing Mold

The EPA SAYS
to stop mold in its tracks:

  • Act quickly when a water leak or spill occurs indoors. Mold is less likely to grow if the affected area is thoroughly dried within 24 to 48 hours.
  • Clean and repair roof gutters regularly.
  • Make sure the ground slopes away from a building’s foundation, so water does not enter or collect near the foundation.
  • Keep air-condition drip pans clean and drain lines flowing properly.
  • Keep indoor humidity low, ideally between 30 percent and 50 percent. Make sure places of high humidity, such as bathrooms, are well-ventilated. Use a dehumidifier if needed.
  • If you’re in California, you might want to give us a call and see about getting an assessment from Byebyemold.
