What Should You Do to Prevent Mold?

Mold tends to grow in areas with excess moisture and warmth. If water is allowed to enter the home through a leaky pipe or a crack in the window frame, it provides the perfect conditions for mold to grow.

Owners who want to prevent mold growth would do well to regularly check for leaky pipes and update the weatherproofing of their homes. For rooms that typically have high humidity (like bathrooms), regular cleaning and good ventilation can help prevent mold. Look for standing pools of water and use a dehumidifier in rooms that are normally humid and damp.
