Preventing Household Mold

Aside

Preventing Household Mold Got Mold

Household mold can cause a host of ailments, particularly among children and older adults.  Symptoms include respiratory problems, headaches, fatigue and rashes. Controlling common household mold isn’t as tough as you might think.  To minimize your exposure to household mold, scrub small visible patches of mold with a solution made with a cup of bleach added to a gallon of water. Rinse thoroughly.  For large areas of dried mold, call a professional.  Tackling this yourself can release toxin-carrying spores into the air.  The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention offers these tips to prevent the growth of mold…

  • Clean bathrooms with anti-mold products
  • Use a dehumidifier to keep indoor humidity below 50 percent
  • Fix leaky or broken pipes quickly
  • Remove or replace soaked rugs and upholstery
  • Don’t replace carpet in moist indoor areas, such as a basement or bathroom
  • Make sure ventilation in all rooms is adequate
