Mold: a major IAQ Concern for homeowners, building owners and tenant


"Common-Sense Ideas Help Answer Mold Dilemma" by Wayne Johnson

MOLD PREVENTION TIPS

The key to mold control and leaks is moisture control. Solve moisture problems before they become mold problems!

* Fix leaky plumbing and leaks in the home as soon as possible.
* Watch for condensation and wet spots. Fix the source(s) of the moisture problem(s) as soon as possible.
* Prevent moisture due to condensation by increasing surface temperature or reducing the moisture level in the air (humidity). To increase surface temperature, insulate or increase air circulation. To reduce the moisture level in air, repair leaks, increase ventilation (if outside air is cold and dry), or dehumidify (if outdoor air is warm and humid).
* Keep heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) drip pans clean, flowing properly and unobstructed.
* Vent moisture-generating appliances, such as dryers, to the outside where possible.
* Maintain low indoor humidity, below 60% relative humidity (rh), ideally 30-50%, if possible.
* Perform regular building HVAC inspections and maintenance as scheduled.
* Clean and dry wet or damp spots within 48 hours.
* Don't let foundations stay wet. Provide drainage and slope the ground away from the foundation.

These tips are some basic guidelines to help you to understand and prevent mold from growing and living in your home. Mold can gradually destroy the things they grow on. Prevent damage to your home or structure, which will help you save money, and avoid potential health risk by controlling moisture and eliminating mold growth.
