While mold is unsightly and even life-threatening, it’s also incredibly common. If you don’t have mold growing in your home right now, chances are good that at some point, you will. In fact, significant mold growth can happen in as little as two days. So what can you do to prevent mold in your home? Keep it from growing in the first place!

Mold needs moisture to grow, so a key weapon in your arsenal in the battle against mold growth is controlling the moisture in your home. If you have a way to measure humidity in your home, you’ll want to keep it at a level under 60%. Dry wet things quickly, especially absorbent materials like fabric, cardboard, or paper. Improve the airflow in your home by opening closet doors frequently and keeping furniture away from walls to keep them ventilated. Repair leaks as soon as possible.
