Apr 7, 2021

Do you have knowledge of mold or maybe thought you did? Are you concerned you may have or will get mold in your home? Please see some facts below:

  • Many molds are harmless, but some are not.
  • Not all molds can or will make you sick.
  • Mold is prone to moist areas.
  • If water damage occurs, mold can grow within 24-48 hours.
  • Painting over mold does not remove it.
  • Bleach does not kill mold.
  • If you have allergies or asthma mold can affect you more.

Reduce indoor humidity (to 30-60%) to decrease mold growth by:

  1. Venting bathrooms, dryers, and other moisture-generating sources to the outside
  2. Using air conditioners and de-humidifiers
  3. Increase ventilation wherever you can.
