How can you eliminate Moisture and Mold

How do you define mold?

The fungi are microscopic and grow by spores. Most likely, you've experienced at least one black or greenish spot of mold, either inside the house (on wall surfaces, or in bathrooms in areas of high humidity) or on food items.

The scientific names of molds that are commonly present at home are Cladosporium, Penicillium, Alternaria and Aspergillus.

The ideal setting to encourage the growth of mold is portrayed by the presence of humid as well as warm temperatures .

What is the cause of the growth of mold?

The many sources of mold are the following:

  • Humidity inside the house

  • Inadequate ventilation;

  • Condensation that appears on walls or windows;

  • Inequal heating in the rooms.

Factors that enhance that appearance

  • Geothermal heating insulation joinery (double glazing) Double glazing joinery can enhance that appearance of condensation and can therefore contribute to the growth of mold. These windows are extremely beneficial as they stop the loss of heat. They also hinder the circulation of air. This is why the home should be well-ventilated on a regular basis.

  • The moisture that builds up inside the house, specifically in the kitchen as well as inside the bathroom (from showering or cooking) is among the primary factors leading to the development of mold.

  • Insufficient heating is an important factor in the growth of mold. Heating does not eliminate the moisture from the room, however it does increase the capacity of air to hold more moisture in the form of vapor (without condensation) in the event that an area is heated and later cooled, but without ventilating or venting. In one way or the other, the humidity of the atmosphere will get affected to the possibility of mold or dampness.

Allergies can be caused by mold.

The presence of mold can have many negative effects on your health which is especially dangerous for children. Some of the symptoms of mold allergy are:

  • nasal runny nose

  • Sneezing and coughing

  • an irritation sensation in the throat. Or pressure inside the chest

  • The wheezing and the breathing issues

  • tear, redness and irritation of the eyes, and burning appearance to the eyes

  • Eczema and irritations of the skin

  • fatigue, headache.

Tips to rid yourself of mold:

  • Clean the kitchen thoroughly Cleanse the stove as well as the walls adjacent to it thoroughly (grease staining creates a great setting for the growth of mold) Do not let food to spoil. Discard any food items that have expired.

  • Dry clothes outside the home

  • Do not put rugs made of textiles on the bathroom floor.

  • Use a dehumidifier.

Moisture in the home is also caused through cold water pipes when the temperature differential is significant.
