Moisture causing mold in house

Mold, Moisture and your home

With the variety of issues facing the environment in 2016 from air pollution to mold many feel as though there is nothing they can do that matters enough. We can clean up all of the messes after they’ve happened, but more importantly it’s what we do to prevent them that create an impact.  Mold and Moisture continue to be one of the leading issues faced in the environment, and the key to changing this problem is prevention.

The EPA has released a guide for homeowners and renters alike which provides information on how to clean up residential mold and how to prevent mold growth. This 20 page guide is easy to read, provides pictures to refer to and provides additional resources for those who wish to learn more.  If you are a homeowner, property owner or renter, we suggest you download and read the guide here: A Brief Guide to Mold, Moisture, and Your Home.

Prevention truly is important when dealing with mold and the more information that you know, the better!  Our blog includes past articles such as Preventing Mold in Your Attic and Controlling Mold in your Bathroom which are two areas very susceptible to mold issues.

Like all issues facing the environment, we know that taking steps to prevent them is what matters. If you do your part to prevent mold growth, you are part of the movement to help reduce the number of people affected with health related issues due to mold and decrease mold problems in homes. Get ahead of the issue now by reading the guide as well as our blog posts and then get to work!
