Summer Mold Prevention Tips to Avoid the Need for Mold Remediation in Ellsworth, WI

June 17th, 2016

Some people assume that they don’t have to worry about mold during the summer. They assume that with soaring temperatures, comes less moisture. Actually, mold doesn’t just show up during the winter months. There doesn’t need to be snow and ice on the ground in order for mold to develop. How do you keep mold away from your home and family in the summer while trying to plan activities and vacations? If you don’t know where to start, ServiceMaster Restoration and Cleaning hopes the tips below will help send you down the best path. Should you have any questions
about mold remediation, contact us at (715) 643-5200.

Make Sure Air Circulates

It’s always important to keep air circulating in your home. This helps to keep a room dry. If moisture has a chance to settle, mold has a chance to grow. Open a window or door when you take a shower. Run the ceiling fans when you’re home.

Keep Your Home Free of Clutter and Dirt

This may seem strange, but it’s a good idea to maintain a clean home in order to prevent mold. Mold can hide just about anywhere, and you may not find out about the problem until it’s too late. Don’t leave stacks of paper or magazines lying around as the paper can absorb additional moisture. Scrub soap scum off surfaces. Wipe away spills as soon as they happen.

Be Careful About Humidity

Wipe down your walls and ceiling to remove excess moisture. If high humidity is a constant problem, you may have to invest in a dehumidifier.

According to the United States Department of Labor, mold can cause many health problems, with children, pregnant women, and the elderly being among the most vulnerable. Don’t let mold take over your home. Use ServiceMaster Restoration and Cleaning of Ellsworth, WI, for mold remediation assistance.
