Summer Mold and Mildew Tips

As many of us have already noticed, this summer is HOT! And its pretty humid as well! So what does this mean for your home?

When the air gets warmer, the amount of moisture it can hold increases (which is why the air often feels heavy in summer). This means that your home is at a higher risk for mold and mildew!

Mold and mildew love dirty surfaces, so regular cleaning will help prevent these home intruders! As an additional tip, after taking baths and showers leave shower doors and curtains open to help surfaces dry more quickly, and leave that bathroom fan running for a couple more minutes!

Preventing mold and mildew is easier than getting rid of it!

Outside of your restroom, here are a few more tips to keep mold and mildew out of your home:
-Only open windows at night when the air is cooler.
-Use fans to keep the air in your home circulating if you don’t have central air.
-If you have dehumidifier, use it! If not, consider purchasing one, especially if your home is frequent to mold and mildew!
-Regularly clean and vacuum rugs and carpets, as mold loves to sink into these surfaces!
