Mold: The Last Guest You Want for Your Summer Vacation

Nothing ruins your vacation like mold. By preventing these problems and addressing them when they do arise, you can give yourself peace of mind all summer long.

How Mold Spreads

Mold tends to spread under certain conditions, especially when your home is:

  • Humid– The more moisture that builds up in the air, the easier it will be for mold to get the water it needs to spread. This is why mold is so likely to spread during the summer, especially in hot, humid climates like Spartanburg’s.
  • Wet– Mold can get moisture from wet walls, carpets, furnishings, and pipes. Whenever there is a leak or flood in your home, mold control must be one of your top concerns. Make sure when repairs are being made that the experts also take the time to look for traces of mold.
  • Stuffy– Ventilation prevents mold spores and moisture from building up long enough in one corner of your home to create a mold problem. However, if your home isn’t properly ventilated, there’s nothing to stop this.

If you can keep your home dry and the indoor air flowing, it’s easy to keep mold at bay. A little prevention goes a long way.
