Tips on Preventing Mold
Using Proper Ventilation to Prevent Mold
When cooking a meal, make sure you have proper ventilation to avoid mold from the moisture. Using dehumidifiers and AC is key in having proper ventilation. Things such as washing dishes, running the dish washer, or showering are all things in need of proper ventilation to avoid mold.
Using Mold Resistant Products
Mold resistant drywall can be paperless. Instead, the gypsum core is covered in fiberglass which makes the surface of the drywall very water-resistant.
Keep an Eye on the Indoor Humidity
Try to maintain a balance of indoor humidity between 30 and 60 percent. Any local hardware store will be able to provide you with one to purchase. If you notice condensation on windows, pipes and walls, that may be a sign that there is excessive humidity. Make sure to dry the surface immediately and address whatever is causing the humidity.
