Keep an Eye Out for Mold!

With winter right around the corner – or, perhaps, already in full thrall in your area – you might be in more danger of a mold infestation than you were aware of.

When it comes to mold, it begins to grow in areas where there is a lot of moisture. You may not think that this is something you need to worry about when it comes to your house in the winter but that may only be the case until you recall how moisture forms.

Moisture forms when a heated area comes in contact with a cooler area, and the combination of those reactions ends up leaving you with moisture in the area. If enough moisture grows in the area, you may find that mold starts to grow as well.

No one wants that!

Why Is Mold Bad?

Not only is mold disgusting to look at, but it is also dangerous for your health and it can have long-term effects on you and your family.

The other issue is that mold is sneaky. You may find that it has already grown in your home and you’re unaware of it. If you think you might be a victim of mold growing quietly in your space, you should consider getting someone to come and inspect your home.

If you have been feeling sick or if your allergies have been acting up for no reason, some mold might have grown in your house without you being aware of it.

Here at RidAway, we cannot stress how important it is to remove the mold as soon as you know about it! Make sure to look into various places where moisture typically congregates – bathrooms, kitchens, and perhaps even a pool shed if you have it – and keep an eye out so that you don’t end up with mold.

Mold Mitigation

If you are worried that you’re going through a particularly humid period, there are ways to mitigate it. You can look into getting a dehumidifier, especially as many utility companies are pushing customers to get new, more energy-efficient appliances by offering rebates and the like.

Dehumidifiers work by pulling moisture from the air, meaning that you can plop one into a room that is suffering from increased moisture and not have to worry from there.

There are other ways to prevent mold growth as well, but the most important is to make sure you’re keeping an eye out on places where it might grow. If you have any fear/thoughts that this might happen somewhere in your house, keep an eye on it so that you’re not surprised down the road!
