Homeowner Tips for Eliminating Mold...


From the U.S. EPA Website - As Posted on 1/23/02

  • Moisture control is the key to mold control, so when water leaks or spills occur indoors - ACT QUICKLY. If wet or damp materials or areas are dried 24-48 hours after a leak or spill happens, in most cases mold will not grow.
     
  • Clean and repair roof gutters regularly.
     
  • Make sure the ground slopes away from the building foundation, so that water does not enter or collect around the foundation.
     
  • Keep air conditioning drip pans clean and the drain lines unobstructed and flowing properly.
     
  • Keep indoor humidity low. If possible, keep indoor humidity below 60 percent (ideally between 30 and 50 percent) relative humidity. Relative humidity can be measured with a moisture or humidity meter, a small, inexpensive ($10-$50) instrument available at many hardware stores.
     
  • If you see condensation or moisture collecting on windows, walls or pipes ACT QUICKLY to dry the wet surface and reduce the moisture/water source. Condensation can be a sign of high humidity.
