Useful Tips to reduce mold from your property

The best way to eliminate mold is to reduce the opportunity for growth. Here are some tips to help reduce the possibility of mold growth in your home or business:

  • Keep interior humidity levels low (ideally below 50%).
  • Repair roof, wall or plumbing leaks to remove moisture.
  • If flooding does occur, clean up and dry the area thoroughly and quickly. Remove or replace carpets or upholstery that cannot be dried quickly or completely.
