June is National Safety Month- Mold Safety

6/23/2016 (Permalink)

Mold has received a lot of media attention over the past few years.  Mold is indoors and outdoors.  There is a lot of information on the internet regarding mold, so please make sure the information you read is accurate.

A great source of information can be found at the EPA website.  We copied the following directly from https://www.epa.gov/mold/ten-things-you-should-know-about-mold  “Ten Things You Should Know about Mold” to get you started in the right direction.

·         “There is no practical way to eliminate all mold and mold spores in the indoor environment; the way to control indoor mold growth is to control moisture.

·         If mold is a problem in your home or school, you must clean up the mold and eliminate sources of moisture.

·         Fix the source of the water problem or leak to prevent mold growth.

·         Reduce indoor humidity (to 30-60%) to decrease mold growth by:

    1. Venting bathrooms, dryers and other moisture-generating sources to the outside
    2. Using air conditioners and de-humidifiers
    3. Increasing ventilation
    4. Using exhaust fans whenever cooking, dishwashing and cleaning”
