Real Estate Tips: Out With The Mold…

carpet…And in with the new! February can be know as a wet month, whether due to rain or snow, and this means it’s the perfect time for mold. Below is a list of some things you can do around the house to keep the mold at bay.

  • Have your carpets professionally cleaned and vacuum regularly. This helps you remove sources that are likely to come in contact with moisture. 
  • Get some fresh air. Open the windows. By doing this, you help give mold an exit and reduce the trapped moisture that can attract mold in the future.
  • Turn up the heat. Condensation is bad for your home. So if you notice that it is forming, bring those rooms to a warmer temperature so the the water vapor in the air doesn’t change to the liquid state.
  • Change your shower curtain. This will help eliminate unhealthy mold and mildew that contribute to mold problems in the shower and tub. Try to air out the shower and/or wipe down the walls before leaving the bathroom.
