The Best Way to Control Mold Growth Is to Eliminate Moist Conditions in Your Home or Workplace

Many people may think about the potential for mold growth in the aftermath of a flood, but mold control is an ongoing concern in just about any building that has an air conditioner, plumbing, or other common everyday conveniences that can generate moisture indoors. In fact, even condensation that forms in your bathroom after you take a hot shower day after day can provide the perfect conditions for mold to take root and start growing on your walls, floor, or ceiling tiles.

Moisture is one of the key ingredients that mold needs to thrive. That’s why the best form of mold control is to check your home regularly for water leaks and condensation that can soak building materials and make sure to dry these areas before they promote mold growth. Once mold has gained a foothold in your home or workplace, it can be difficult to eradicate, and indoor mold can cause people to experience a number of allergic reactions, sometimes severe.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has published a list of mold prevention and control tips, including:

  • Clean and dry any damp or wet building materials or furnishings within 48 hours
  • Reduce indoor humidity by using air vents and dehumidifiers
  • Use exhaust fans in the kitchen when cooking or washing dishes to prevent steam from saturating the walls or ceiling
