Winterize your home against mold

This time of year many homeowners are winterizing their homes to make them more energy efficient and reduce heating costs. They don’t often think about the steps needed to prevent excess moisture that promote mold growth during the winter, but it’s even more important because it affects health. Fortunately, the same solutions can fix both problems, so check out this list of steps you should take now.

  • Make sure the seals around windows and doors are intact and effective.
  • Inspect gutters, downspouts, and lawn drainage to make sure water flows away from the house.
  • Replaced broken or defective mortar in basements.
  • Insulate water pipes to prevent them from freezing and breaking.
  • Ventilate crawl spaces and cover soil with roofing paper or polyethylene film.

If you have excess moisture or detect actual mold in your home, contact us right away. Closed up homes with heat vents and ducts spreading spores can make mold problems grow quickly, and we can eliminate it quick.
