Molds, also referred to
as mildew, can be found in most environments.
They release spores into the air and are among
the widest living organisms.
Molds grow best in dark,
moist areas where there is little circulation.
To control indoor mold:
- Fix all water leaks
and damp areas associated with mold growth.
- Use a dehumidifier,
especially in the basement area.
- Reduce the humidity
in your house to 50% or lower
- Keep windowsills dry
and free of mold.
- Check the air conditioner
filters once a month. Clean permanent filters
every three months.
- Keep bathroom walls,
floor, tub tile and shower curtain dry and clean.
- Keep live plants out
of the bedroom.

from bathroom, laundry room and other potential
