Preventing Mold During The Winter

As the temperature starts to drop and it finally feels like fall around New England, it is that time for homeowners to start preparing for winter. You may think that mold doesn’t grow during the winter but that is far from true!

Living in New England, we often crank up the heat in our homes which is one of the main reasons that mold can grow quickly. Areas such as inside walls, surfaces of closest’s, basements,bathrooms and kitchens are some of the highest mold growth areas in your home.

During the winter months follow these mold prevention tips:

  • Check the indoor humidity levels in you home and make sure they are below 40 percent. If you are using a humidifier as many people do, be sure that you aren’t over exceeding the limit.
  • To remove possible mold sources, clean and vacuum as often as you can.
  • If there is a crawl space underneath your house, try to cover up the soil with polyethylene plastic. If the crawl space has vents be sure to keep them open during the winter.
  • Be sure that your walls are well-insulated. Because of the temperature discrepancy between the outside and inside, good insulation can ensure that condensation is limited.
  • During the fall, be sure that you clean your gutters and downspouts. This will help keep water from leaking in your home.
  • When taking a shower during the winter, use exhaust fans or open a window to cut back on the moisture.

Mold can start growing in your home during any point of the year! Just because there is naturally less humidity during the winter, doesn’t mean that mold wont grow.

If you fall into a mold issue at your home, please reach out to the specialists at Work Dog Property Solutions. We can be contacted over the phone at 1-855-665-3911 or through our online contact form.
