How You Can Prevent Moisture and MoldMold is a thin, sometimes white and sometimes black structure produced by some bacteria. Although bacteria are always present in the air, the bacteria that cause mold need a certain temperature and humidity. Mold may be above anything else, dark, damp, warm, and non-circulating areas are ideal areas for them. Cellars, basements, tight spaces and even wardrobes should be monitored regularly due to mold growth.
Molding can also occur on carpets or rugs in the basement, on shower curtains, or on damp clothes that are kept on the edge for ironing. Such molds are generally more prone to occur in new homes because the materials used during the construction phase are often moist. As mold develops, it damages the area it is located and begins to emit odors. They fade the color of the fabrics (including leather) and continue to damage from time to time until the fabric is broken. To protect your home and belongings, you must prevent mold!
Moisture & Moisture Prevention RecommendationsMold in the home can also occur without a certain moisture; To prevent molding, it is necessary to find areas that are too moist or damp and dry them. When moisture or humidity is high, this can be difficult and isolation may be required. Some basements are constantly moist due to the water flowing from the upper areas, in this case you have to change the outside and find and prevent the flowing part. If your clothes dryer has an air outlet, you can pull it out to let the humid air out. By heating for a short time, you can generally get rid of the moisture in the house, then you should open the windows and doors to circulate the air in which the moisture is drawn. A fan can also help you prevent mold.
Cold air retains less moisture than hot air. Air conditioners that work well work by drawing the cool air and cooling it and then giving the dry and cold air to the room. You can use a moisture meter to measure the humidity of the room. You should keep your windows and doors closed while using an air cleaner or air conditioner.
Air flow and good ventilation are essential to destroy moisture. When the outside air is drier than the air in the house, the ventilators let dry air in, absorb excess moisture and expel it. When natural ventilation is not enough, you can place a fan on your wall or near your window, so you can remove humid air from your home.
Never put your clothes in a wet or damp place. You should dry all your clothes well before putting them in the closet. Open wet shower curtains and dry them. Try to dry your clothes quickly after washing them. A slow and moldy smell may occur on slowly drying fabrics, which is not a good sign.
