Mold Prevention-First thing you need to check out is your foundation for those cracks. If you have a well built foundation, you'll save thousands of dollars in the future.
- Basements are notorious for water and moisture. Make sure your basement is well ventilated and sealed. Keep an eye out around window seals in case of leaks and caulk if you see any cracks or openings.
-Make sure the land around your home slants downward, you don't want rainfall to sit next to the foundation.
-Mold loves bathrooms, make sure you always leave the doors open when showering to prevent condensation.
-Keep your gutters cleaned to prevent excess water from sitting on your roof.
- Keep your home well ventilated during weather changes. Dehumidifiers work great in hot weather.
