As the wet winter months approach, moisture control becomes more of an issue. Our professional team at Quality Control, Inc. can help you prevent mold and mildew in your home with our professional services. However, below are some things you can practice regularly at home to keep moisture under control.
• Repair leaks promptly. Leaks contribute to the moisture level in your home, creating a breeding area for mold and mildew. To keep your family safe from these harmful substances, be sure to fix all leaks you find as soon as possible. Check regularly around sinks, toilets, and faucets to make sure you do not see any leaking water.
• Keep interior doors open. Keeping interior doors open allows air to flow freely through your house, increasing circulation and evaporating moisture more quickly. This keeps the air in your home drier and is an easy way to practice moisture control.
• Use vent fans. Vent fans aren’t just for bad smells; they pull moisture out of your home and disperse it outside. This is especially important in rooms like kitchens and bathrooms where moisture is plentiful. A vent fan can keep these rooms drier, providing enhanced moisture control and preventing mold and mildew from growing.
• Address standing water. Standing water in or near your home can signify a bigger problem, such as drainage or foundation issues. This will definitely contribute negatively to the amount of moisture in your home, so it’s best to contact our Quality Control, Inc. team if this occurs.
