Mold in the home is not just unsightly but it could also be bad for your health, being linked to respiratory problems such as coughing, wheezing and asthma. Carpeting is also susceptible to mold, and if affected it may be expensive to replace. Don’t worry, though, as Elite Cleanpro in Palm Desert have some tips that can prevent mold making an appearance.

Keep Your Home Dry

If there has been heavy rain or flooding, be sure to thoroughly dry your basement and other affected areas as soon as possible. If there are any spills or leaks in your home, never allow standing water to remain but rather deal with the problem straight away.

Check Your Home’s Humidity

Water doesn’t always make its presence obvious. Without proper ventilation your property can become too humid, and moisture in the air can provide mold with the conditions it needs to grow. Make sure your furniture is not blocking air vents or grilles, and ensure that there is adequate airflow through your home by regularly opening up windows and doors. If your home is still too humid (the perfect range is between 30 and 60%) then consider installing a dehumidifier.

Use Mold-Resistant Products

If renovating your home, or indeed are building a new home, think about using specialised mold-resistant products such as mold inhibiting paint or mold-resistant drywall. Any extra costs associated with these products will most likely translate into savings in the long run.

Keep Your Carpeting Clean

Clean carpets are less likely to develop mold, so make sure to regularly clean your carpeting. The best way to ensure your carpets stay totally clean is to have them professionally cleaned periodically.
