The Washington, D.C.-Herndon, VA area is rich in history, with beautiful historic homes dotting its landscape. Of course, a great number of these homes were built years before codes required ventilation fans or windows in bathrooms, or before the reality of what mold can do to a home was known. Nowadays, there are frequent news programs featuring homes with rampant mold, not all of which were destroyed through a natural disaster such as flooding. Mold can grow even in dry areas of the country, so long as there is moisture inside the home and mold spores in the air.
While it is impossible to eliminate all spores from the outside air, it is possible to keep them from growing into a troublesome problem when they make their way indoors into your Herndon, VA home. The following are a few simple household improvements that homeowners can make to ensure that mold does not develop because of excess moisture in the air. Regardless of how old or new a home is, a few economical changes can mean the difference between being mold-free, and having an expensive and time-consuming cleanup project on your hands.
With a few simple home improvements and preventative measures, homeowners can ensure that the inside and outside of their home remains free of troublesome mold. Once mold has infiltrated wall and flooring surfaces, it is harder to kill and remove than it would have been to check for proper ventilation and drainage.
