Molds in Spring

Spring is typically the peak of “mold season” which threatens a number of issues for homeowners. As a part of your Spring Cleaning this year,  pay attention to the presence of mold and preventing its growth. Taking the right precautions now can save you down the line. Here are our spring tips for preventing mold.

Springtime Mold Prevention Tips


  1. Control moisture in your home. Keep your bathrooms, dryers, and other moisture-generating rooms or appliances vented to the outside. Use air conditioning and dehumidifiers to decrease humidity, and use exhaust fans whenever cooking or washing the dishes.
  2. Don’t let spills or still water sit. It doesn’t take long for mold to gather. If you notice any water damage, it should be addressed immediately.
  3. Repair water leaks whenever you see them. Again, the common theme is controlling humidity and water. We recommend you unclog HVAC units drain regularly.
  4. Improve airflow at home. Spring is a great time to open windows and air out the home.
  5. Keep an eye on your attic and basement’s ventilation. If you think about it, an attic or basement is the perfect breeding ground for mold. It can be damp and forgotten. Do routine checks to make sure it’s dry (especially after a rainstorm).
  6. Conduct a mold inspection. Hire a professional  to take the time to look through your home, through the attic and basement, and through any crawl space, for signs of mold or excess moisture. Professionals use tools like moisture meters and infrared cameras to detect moisture where the human eye cannot. These tools allow the professionals  to determine moisture and help determine the proper solution. The earlier you spot the problem, the faster you can fix it and reduce the risk of mold build-up. The longer mold goes undetected, the worse it is on your health and your budget.

Professional Mold Removal

The spring is an exciting time to get back outside and enjoy the sunny weather again, but humidity and higher levels of moisture are always threatening mold growth within homes and buildings. Especially during the springtime, homeowners must always be wary of mold and their effects on building structures and personal health.

Be sure to do it quickly to prevent the fungus from spreading to new areas on the property and affecting walls, floors, ceilings, insulation, and furnishings. Doing so can also protect the health and safety of everyone in the home.
