Preventing Winter Mold
Now that the temperature is dropping, you may start to wonder what you can do to keep your home healthy and prepared for the colder months. While mold does not occur more frequently in the winter compared to other times of the year in a controlled indoor setting, there are problems to look out for in the colder months that can affect the moisture in your home and cause mold growth. Common winter problems including frozen pipes and improper insulation can lead to more than simply a cold home.
Mold can be a scary concept to any homeowner, but here are some steps you can take to prevent mold from growing due to the brisk temperatures. Ensure that your gutters are clear to help prevent ice from building up and that your dehumidifiers are running in lower levels of your home. Check that your attic and any pipes in your crawl spaces are insulated to help prevent pipe bursts or condensation. Following these procedures will keep your home properly insulated and free of mold caused by uncontrolled moisture levels.
