  Spotlight on Mold: Tips to Help Reduce Mold in your Home
Our MA home inspection provides a MA licensed home inspector. "Mold will likely never disappear altogether, but there are precautionary steps that can be taken."      

As public awareness of indoor mold contamination continues to skyrocket, what can you do to help protect your home from mold invasion? The EPA is actively researching and developing protocols to handle mold identification and abatement. The main truth is there is no clear definition as to who may react or how a person will react to various molds at varying levels of exposure. If uncertain about your own condition, your doctor may be the only person that can assist in identifying your reaction and it's severity. Mold will likely never disappear altogether, but there are precautionary steps that can be taken to minimize your exposure. Here are a few tips to help prevent mold from taking over your house and health:

  • Wash mold off hard surfaces and dry completely. Absorbent materials such as ceiling tiles and carpet, may have to be replaced if they are contaminated with mold.
  • Fix leaky plumbing or sources of exterior water penetration immediately.
  • Fix leaky plumbing or sources of exterior water penetration immediately.
  • Keep drip pans in your air conditioner, refrigerator and dehumidifier clean and dry.
  • Use exhaust fans or open windows in kitchens and bathrooms when showering, cooking or using the dishwasher.
  • Vent clothes dryers to the outside of the home.
  • Maintain low indoor humidity, ideally between 30-50% relative humidity. Humidity levels can be measured by hygrometers, which are available at local hardware stores.
  • Look for mold behind cabinets or pictures on cold outside walls, where condensation can occur. Keep furniture away from outside walls.
  • Check around air conditioners and furnaces for stagnant water. Keep these units serviced with regular cleaning of ducts and air filters.
