The cold, humid winter months can create the perfect atmosphere for mold growth. Fortunately, there are several simple ways to reduce and control mold growth in your home this season. Read these tips from SERVPRO to make it safe and fungus-free.

  • Keep the humidity in the room below 45%: If the humidity in your home increases, find additional sources of humidity and resolve problems as quickly as possible. Install a dehumidifier in this room to reduce humidity levels until an ultimate solution is found.
  • Use fans in bathrooms, kitchens, & other parts of the house where excessive humidity often occurs. Good air circulation can help prevent moisture from settling and promote mold growth.
  • Clean and repair gutters regularly, specifically if there are lots of dead leaves in them. In the meantime, ensure the area around the gutter is tiered so that water leaking from your roof flows from your foundation, instead of sitting near to your house where it can grow and contribute to mold growth.

If you can't easily spot a moisture problem but find traces of mold in your home, it may be time to seek professional mold Removal Services in Fairfax Vienna Oaktonfrom the SERVPRO experts.
