Prevent Mold Growth in Your Cincinnati Home or Business


Mold is a threat to the health and safety of your home or commercial building. Its growth can cause extensive damage if unchecked, and exposure may lead to severe health problems for occupants. Because of the severe hazards mold growth poses, it is imperative that you take preventative measures to combat mold growth in your Cincinnati home or business.

How mold causes harm

When mold grows in the home, it can destroy the surfaces and structures it grows on. Remediating mold in a home or building and correcting the damage it has caused can be costly.

Mold growth also affects the health of those inside. Mold releases spores, which travel throughout the home as air circulates. These spores irritate the lungs as you breathe, as well as noses, skin, and eyes. Breathing mold spores can trigger allergies and asthma, as well as other skin and respiratory problems.

How mold grows

Mold grows best in certain environments. It thrives in areas with high moisture. Any home or building can have high moisture levels when air quality is neglected.

Combat mold with HVAC systems

Your home or business’s heating and air conditioning system can help reduce the chances of mold growth. When used properly and in combination with the right indoor air quality equipment, your HVAC system will create a stable indoor environment, absent of many factors that contribute to mold growth.

It’s essential that you reduce moisture in the home or building to prevent mold growth. Ventilation systems should be used in areas where activities can produce high moisture levels, such as n the bathroom, laundry room, or kitchen.

Dehumidifiers also work to remove excess moisture, keeping the entire structure at balanced humidity levels. Using your heating and air conditioning system to move air through the structure will prevent moisture from pooling in certain areas of the interior.
