    How to Prevent or Reduce the Risk of Mold Growth?

    As we know, mold needs four conditions to grow.
    1. Mold spores, which are present in the air everywhere and all the time.
    2. Suitable temperatures, which are usually between 40 and 100 degrees; common temperatures to have in and
    around homes.
    3. Mold food, which is almost anything organic. This can include people and pet food, cardboard, and even drywall
    (paper). Mold food can also be organic material in dust.
    4. Moisture is the final condition needed for mold to grow. Moisture can be visible water puddles from leaks,
    condensation on windows, or in bathrooms. Moisture can also result from basement and roof leaks.

    To help reduce the risk of mold growth, there are several things that can be done.
    • Reduce or eliminate water leaks in basements (or crawl spaces) either through windows or doors or through foundation leaks.
    • Eliminate any water leaks in attics, either from roof leaks or flashing leaks.
    • Eliminate any sources of standing water inside a house; these could include catch basins for condensation or the like.
    • Cover sump pump pits in basements or crawl spaces.
    • Always use bathroom vent (exhaust) fans and make sure they do exhaust to the outside.
    • Always use range hoods when cooking. Ideally, range hoods should exhaust to the outside.
    • Control or reduce indoor air humidity. This can be done with dehumidifiers or whole-house ventilation systems (such as Heat Recovery Ventilators or Energy Recovery Ventilators).
    • Finally, good housekeeping practices are helpful.
