What are common winter mold growth problems?

Winter mold spores

Mold growth in the winter is dangerous as any other mold growth. The only difference is that mold spores can grow more during the winter cold weather.

Winter mold growth happens because our modern homes are sealed up to protect us from the cold but that makes our homes more vulnerable to moisture and humidity problems that help winter mold thrive in our homes.

A sign you have a major mold problem is smelling a musty odor. This musty odor comes from trapped moisture in the home.

Here is a list of areas in the home mold growth commonly occurs:

– Drywall
– The Basement
– Bathrooms
– The Kitchen

To protect your home from mold, you need to keep humidity and moisture under control. The home cannot be too cold or too warm.

Here at Advance Mold Environment, we can protect your home and family from winter mold growth with mold remediation services from certified mold technicians.

We will identify the best way to keep your home humidity under control. We will strategically set up dehumidifiers to reduce condensation levels in your home. We will clean your ductwork and filters to ensure quality indoor air.

Mold spores are present in all indoor and outdoors environments. It’s our responsibility to make sure those mold spores don’t turn into major mold problems.

We are here to monitor your indoor environment so we can protect your home integrity.

Below are some tips to help you do your part in protecting your home:

1. Purchase area rugs rather than have carpet installed. Area rugs can always be washed to keep mold spores from growing.

2. Don’t store items such as paper and clothes in humid areas of your home.

3. Protect your roof and home foundation from water build up.
