Minimize Mold Growth Around Your Home

Apart from being unsightly and smelly, mold can introduce serious health risks into your home. And while many homeowners have resigned themselves to the fact that they will need to continue cleaning mold buildup, it doesn’t have to be like that. In this post, Thistle DKI has some tips to prevent mold from occurring in your home.

Release the Steam

There are two common areas where steam buildup causes mold growth, your bathroom and your kitchen.

Bathroom

There are a few steps you can take to minimize mold growth in your bathroom:
  • Keep windows open during and after bathing
  • Use any ventilation fans or outlets which are installed
  • Consider reducing the temperature of the water in your shower
  • Keep the door open (if possible)
All of these steps can reduce the amount of steam that accumulates and causes your walls and ceiling to become damp.

Kitchen

If you notice continued instances of mold growth in your kitchen, here are some ideas:
  • Make sure your range hood fan is turned on and at high speed while you are cooking.
  • Once you have finished cooking, reduce it to medium speed until all of the steam has cleared.
  • If your kitchen has one, open the window each time you are cooking
  • Open surrounding doors which can encourage air flow through your home and remove steam from your kitchen

Reduce the Humidity

If mold continues to grow in other areas of your home where steam is not prevalent, there are ways to prevent this.
  • When it’s hot, keep doors and windows open to circulate air and prevent moisture buildup
  • Use a dehumidifier unit
  • Use your air conditioning to reduce the overall temperature
  • Use a pedestal fan in small areas to keep air circulating
