Prevent Mold Growth in Your Home With These Helpful Tips - Bio-One of Poway

Bio-One of Poway, a micro-certified mold inspection and remediation company, understands the dangers associated with mold exposure. Our specialists are trained to restore areas from mold damage properly. Whether it’s in your kitchen, bathroom, basement, garage, or indoor spaces, professionals should clean the mold to guarantee that spores will not cause mold to grow in the future. The most effective way to prevent mold growth is by controlling humidity and moisture levels.

Mold is part of the natural environment, it has been around long before we humans, and it’s a fundamental piece of the ecosystem. As part of the fungus kingdom, molds control environments by decomposing dead animals, leaves and trees, and other organic material. 

Mold grows by spreading tiny reproductive spores that easily travel through the air and land into humid areas and dead matter. It’s impossible to control these spores from entering our houses, and they don’t represent a problem for health as long as humidity levels are controlled. 

There are over 100.000 types of mold: some are dangerous, others toxic, and a percentage of these types of mold have been proven to pose negative health effects on humans exposed to them. Mold produces allergens that may be toxic for people with a compromised immune system and people with respiratory health conditions like asthma or allergies.

  • Check inside kitchen cabinets and under the sink for water leaks and broken pipes. Mold requires only two things for growing and dissemination: water and organic matter. Promptly fix any water-related damage to prevent mold from growing inside the kitchen cabinets and drawers. Mold consumes the surface where it’s growing. You want to prevent mold in your kitchen by fixing these issues quickly.
  • Regularly clean your fridge and other food storage areas. Mold will grow on spoiled food and food left out in the open. Not only will this attract mold, but it will also create rodent and pest infestations. 

If you’re dealing with mold in your kitchen, you want to clean it up as quickly as possible. Check EPA’s guidelines on how to clean up mold properly. If this is too stressful or overwhelming, don’t hesitate to call Bio-One of Poway. We are always ready to help you.

Prevent mold growth mold in your bathroom

  • Control dampness in your bathroom. Installing a bath exhaust fan in your bathroom is the best way to control dampness and humidity in that area. The size of your bathroom will determine which model is the most adequate. If you have a bath exhaust fan, but mold keeps growing in your walls, tile grouts, and caulk, contact your contractor and have them revise and fix it, if necessary. 
  • Avoid leaving wet towels and damp carpets in the bathroom. Mold spores will land in the most humid areas of the house. Hang your towel in a ventilated area, and avoid damp carpets at all costs. Take them outside and wash them regularly. 
  • Keep your bathroom clean. It might sound obvious, but maintaining optimal hygiene levels in your bathroom will prevent mold from growing. At the end of the day, mold is a fungus, and it will thrive in poorly ventilated, undisinfectd areas.
