What should I do to prevent mold growth in my home?
The key to preventing mold growth is identifying and controlling moisture and moisture problems. Mold spores are everywhere, and common sources of moisture are:
- Leakage from pipes, tanks, drains
- Penetrating dampness from the walls
- Internal building defects or other sources
- Wet basements and crawl spaces
- Steam from the bathroom or kitchen
- Condensation on cold surfaces
- Hang wet clothes indoors to dry
- Indoor ventilation dryer
- Poor or improper ventilation of heating and cooking appliances

You can usually see or smell mold problems. Mold may appear as fuzzy, discolored, or slimy patches that get larger as they grow.
Most molds will have a musty smell, which is the first sign of a problem. They can grow anywhere with adequate moisture or moisture problems. The best way to look for mold is to look for signs of mold growth, water stains, warping, or odors under the nose to find the source of the smell.
It may be necessary to look behind and under surfaces such as carpet, wallpaper, cabinets and walls. Certain areas of the home are always prone to mold growth and should be controlled as part of daily cleaning. these are:
- Drawers and cabinets that are not opened for a long time
- Bathrooms; especially showers, bathroom tiles and shower curtains
- Gap and seals for windows, sashes and doors
- Refrigerator door seal
- Surfaces on and around air conditioners
Mold can cause health problems, especially in people with allergies, existing respiratory problems, or a weakened immune system.
To prevent mold in your space, be sure to:
- Open windows, use fans, or both to ventilate the living room
- Use a dehumidifier to remove excess moisture from the air
- Do not accumulate any moisture in the space
- Dry up any condensation you find on the walls and windows
- Regularly clean and dry bathroom, window gaps, stove tops, microwaves, counters, cabinets and windowsills etc
- Clean the inside of the refrigerator and the refrigerator drip tray frequently
- Make sure your household humidity stays low
- Ensure that fabric couches and curtains stay clean and dry
- Repair any roof leaks as soon as possible
