Mold grows year-round
There is a common misconception that mold only grows in the warmer months. The truth is that mold doesn't discriminate based on the climate. Mold has the potential to grow year round, and SERVPRO of West Riverside City is here to help you avoid mold this winter.
Here are some ways that winter mold invades your home or business:
- Cranking up the heat in your home traps the warm air inside with no ventilation. Condensation builds up moisture and affects the relative humidity level. If the weather permits, consider cracking a window for a small amount of time to allow stale air to escape.
- Remove your shoes before entering your home. Dead plants and leaves are a source of heat on the ground and have the potential to release mold spores. Wet shoes in the winter will also release moisture into your carpets. Moisture entering a warm building with poor air flow can cause mold to grow.
- Make sure the windows and doors in your home are properly sealed to avoid moisture entering your home.
