Manhattan Mold Removal Team’s Go-To Tips
Mold spores don’t take a winter vacation. Mold can be troublesome in winter because mold irritants trigger symptoms similar to cold or flu viruses. How do you know if you are experiencing a virus or the effects of mold? Prolonged symptoms of throat irritation, sinus issues, rashes or other debilitating health concerns may hint at mold spores existing in your home. Here are a few tips to help keep your home mold-free:
– Monitor the humidity level in your home. High humidity is a mold haven.
– Regularly vacuum and clean your home.
– Cover crawl spaces with polyethylene plastic.
– Make sure gutters and downspouts keep water flowing away from your foundation.
– Keep materials that mold spores feed on, such as books or clothing, away from walls and out of areas that have high humidity.
