The best way to deal with mold is not to have the problem in the first place.
How do we do this? By prevention.
- Maintain a dry house.
- Make certain clothes are completely dry before putting them away.
- Maintain plumbing. No plumbing leaks equal no hidden water to feed hidden mold.
- Maintain roof. If you’re roof doesn’t leak, it’s not contributing hidden water to feed hidden mold.
- If mold or mildew develops in humid areas like your bathroom, you can control it on hard surfaces by rinsing with a bleach solution.
If mold does develop in spite of your best efforts, a mold inspector can help pinpoint hidden mold.
