Controlling the moisture level in your home is one of the best ways of preventing mold, and you can keep mold out of your home by following these tips:
* Your air conditioner fan should be set on the auto position, rather than on the on position; if set to on, your fan raises the level of humidity inside your home by constantly blowing in condensation from the unit’s evaporator coil.
* Mold can also form indoors due to air condensing on your walls and poor pressure. Interior doors that are closed, duct leaks and exhaust fans can lead to a depressurized environment, and a good ventilation system can keep your home at the right pressure.
* You can also minimize the possibility of mold by turning your air conditioner up a couple of degrees and turning your ceiling fans on, letting them do some of the work in preventing mold.
* Moisture can easily be trapped behind vinyl wallpaper, because it is impervious to moisture and you may well have mold if you notice yellow or pink patches on your vinyl wallpaper.
* You can more effectively control the amount of moisture in your home by making sure that your air conditioning unit is well maintained. Have it serviced once a year and make sure that you change the filter.
* Mold and mildew often form inside closets, because the air tends not to reach inside a closed closet very effectively. You can improve the circulation in your home and prevent mold by simply keeping your closet doors open a little bit at all times.
