Mold can cause many household problems, including unsightly stains and bad smells. It also triggers allergies and various respiratory problems. Gutter Helmet® of Northern Minnesota shares ways that you can prevent mold growth in your own home.

  1. Address Leaky Roofs and Clogged Gutters — Mold thrives in moist conditions, so the first thing you should do is address leaks around the house. Roof leaks should be priority number one because they can quickly worsen, leading to more problems around the home. Clogged gutters could also allow rainwater under the roof deck and into the attic, so make sure the gutters are clean. To that end, it’s worth investing in a gutter protection system like Gutter Helmet®. With Gutter Helmet, you don’t have to worry about how to clean gutters with gutter guards installed.

  1. Keep Indoor Surfaces Dry — Areas such as the bathroom and kitchen are moisture-prone, so it’s important to keep them dry when not in use. Wiping the kitchen countertop, regularly cleaning the shower curtains and completely drying out carpets after cleaning helps reduce the amount of trapped moisture indoors.

  1. Allow Ventilation Regularly — Opening your windows for 15 minutes a day can flush out indoor air pollutants, including mold spores. To accomplish efficient airflow, there must be two openings in a room: one will be the exhaust vent, the other the intake vent. If the room has a double-hung window, you can achieve this by opening both the top and bottom sashes. Also, make it a point to clean your HVAC system’s air filters as often as instructed by your HVAC technician.

  1. Use a Humidifier/Dehumidifier System — A humidifier/dehumidifier system actively controls indoor humidity in relation to the climate. It helps keep the indoor humidity balanced, which helps prevent the growth of mold. It also helps prevent dryness during the winter.
