      How to Prevent Mold Growth During the Winter

      Mold is a fungus that breaks down organic material. It reproduces via spores and spreads by drifting through the air. Mold usually appears in hot, humid environments, but it can also thrive in colder climates. This means it can become an issue even during the winter if the proper precautions aren’t taken. Fortunately, there are ways to prevent this from happening in your home. Professional air conditioning repair expert Superior Air has the details here: 

      How to Prevent Mold Growth During the Winter

      Mold Growth During the Winter

      Like many homeowners, you probably think that mold is a seasonal problem that only appears during the summer months. However, this is a year-round problem that occurs wherever there’s enough moisture or humidity present. If left unchecked, it can slowly rot the wooden components of your attic and window and door frames. It can also cause health problems as the spores disperse throughout your house and negatively affect your indoor air quality. 

      Useful Tips to Consider

      If you want to prevent your heating and air conditioning installation from developing mold growth, you need to check the places where it can usually be found in your home. These include beneath your kitchen sink, on countertops and in bathrooms and the laundry area. Any visible mold must be cleaned with diluted bleach or vinegar, both of which will kill the growth already taking place. Other useful tips include:

      • Adjust your indoor humidity – It’s important to keep your home’s indoor humidity below 50 percent at all times. This shouldn’t be too difficult during the winter season, but keep in mind that humidity levels shouldn’t get too low either!
      • Install UV lights – These should be installed in your ductwork or the blower cabinet. When mold spores pass through the UV lights, they’ll lose their ability to reproduce. and therefore stop spreading.
