Depending on where you live and the humidity levels you regularly experience, you may not be used to periodically dealing with mold and mildew. However, no matter where you live mold and mildew can grow very quickly in the right setting. The thing to remember is that mold and mildew can quickly grow and spread in certain conditions.

Mold can cause health concerns for even the healthiest people. Breathing issues, sinus congestion, eye, nose, and throat irritation, and headaches are all symptoms you may experience when you are in the presence of mold. If you already have breathing problems or a weakened immune system, you are more likely to suffer these symptoms.

The key to not letting mold and mildew completely take over your home is not to allow it to start. Once the problem begins, you need a very aggressive approach to eliminate the problem and sanitize the area.

To start, let’s discuss things you can do to prevent the growth of mold and mildew in your home. Walkthrough your home and identify areas where there is more moisture than others. The higher the moisture levels in an area of your home, the more likely it is to develop mold and mildew. If you find moisture issues that are caused by problems, address those problems and correct them before mold begins to develop.

If there are areas where water tends to gather around the exterior of your home, you should take precautions to divert the water away from your home. Even in a perfect world, bathrooms contain a lot of moisture. To keep the moisture content as low as possible, always run your bathroom fan when you are bathing. As soon as you get out of the shower, hang your wet towel so it can dry and close your shower curtain so it has a better chance of drying.

If you do see mold in your home, address the issue immediately. It grows very quickly. Delays can mean the difference in a small mold issue that can be treated by hand and in needing to bring in a professional crew and move out of your home. Never underestimate what mold can do and the harmful consequences it can have on you.
