5 Tips to Keep Your Mercer County NJ Home or Business Mold Free
Excess moisture is a perfect environment of mold. Control moisture and you can control mold. Here are 5 Important tips for Mercer County Homeowners:
Quick clean-up of water leaks. Any water leaks or spills that occur need immediate attention. Act quickly to thoroughly dry damp areas and materials with 24-48 hours to eliminate the potential mold growth.
Grade Landscaping Beds. Slope landscaping beds away from your home and building to limit the opportunity for ground water to collect and jeopardize your foundation.
Maintain your Gutters and Roofing. Seasonally clean and clear your gutters and spouting to keep it clean and flowing. Debris build ups cause water leaks around windows and roofing.
Inspect Air Conditioning drain lines and drip pans. Routine inspection of filters, drip pans and drain lines for your AC system is a good practice to ensure line remains unobstructed with a proper flow. This inspection is especially important when starting your AC for the hot summer days ahead.
Indoor Humidity Levels. The relative humidity in your home or office should ideally be below 60%. This is easily monitored by a moisture meter that is usually available at the local hardware store. Condensation on windows is an indicator that you may have humidity. Running exhaust fans and a dehumidifier can alleviate this issue.
