How to Prevent Mold in Autumn

How you can prevent mold.  Cold, damp weather means one thing: mold growth. We aren’t only talking about outdoor mold though!  Buildings affected by the recent rainstorms may have experienced water damage and that means the bathrooms, kitchens, basements, and carpets could have mold, as well. Outside, you can find mold in gutters, soil, rotten wood, and even fallen leaves.

There is good news, though. Mold can typically be prevented by following a few helpful tips we found online, at Better Health USA.

  1. Use a dehumidifier in damp areas (50% or more humidity) of your home.
  2. Dry and/or replace water damaged items in your home within 24 to 48 hours.
  3. If your closets are damp, keep the light on to prevent growth of mold or mildew.
  4. Outside, remove any fallen leaves, decaying plants or compost piles.
