Once mold remediation has taken place, you may feel relieved, but it’s essential to learn from the mold outbreak. It would help if you took the necessary measures to prevent the mold from returning.

Make sure you keep mold out of your building by taking the proper steps. Use the following mold prevention tips to guide how to stop mold from coming back.

Eliminate Excess Moisture

Moisture is essential for mold to grow, so if you can eliminate any excess water from your property, you can significantly reduce the potential for mold growth. 

Immediately Dry Wet Areas

Managing moisture can help you prevent mold growth easily. If we deprive molds of their feeding material (steam), they cannot grow. Instead, you need to dry the wet areas within 24-48 hours. It will help you ensure that molds will not come back again.

Air Circulation and Ventilation

Keeping bathrooms, laundry rooms, kitchens, and basements well ventilated would help prevent mold buildup. As simple as opening windows and doors during dry weather would let fresh air into spaces and maintain air circulation.

Use Mold-Resistant Products in Homes

Whether old or new, it is always better to equip your home with mold-resistant products such as mold-resistant drywall, sheetrock, etc. Also, use mold inhibitors for paints. It is recommended to use mold-resistant walls, especially for bathrooms, kitchens, laundry rooms, etc.

Throw Out Moldy Objects

Getting rid of moldy items would save you from continually worrying about new mold growing on them. It would also help prevent decay from further spreading to other objects. For example, if a part of your drywall has mold, cut it out and replace it.

Regularly Conduct Maintenance and Repairs

Routinely inspect your business for leaks, damps, flooding, or clogged gutters, especially after a storm or heavy rain. During dry weather, check for cracks or signs of foundation shifting. After finding such problems, have them repaired as soon as possible because where water damage occurs, mold growth often would quickly follow.
