Mold and Moisture in Your Home

Mold and Moisture in Your Home

We live in beautiful Southwest Florida, but unfortunately our beautiful paradise does come with a few issues – mold and moisture is one of those issues! It’s important to keep your home mold free, as mold can cause problems with air quality, which is not safe for you, your family and your pets – and it can destroy your home sadly.  The key to mold control is moisture control.

The EPA (United States Environmental Protection Agency) provides a great guide for homeowners and renters on how to clean up residential mold problems and how to prevent mold growth.  The guide provides detailed info on prevention, moisture control, cleanup and when it’s time to hire a professional! You can download the guide right here…

Don’t forget! Hiring a home watch company can also help you detect mold in your home. A home watch professional is trained to look at your home for potential problems when you’re not there.  You may not even realize you have mold, but your home watch professional can bring it to your attention if he or she identifies mold in your home.
