Tips for Mold Infestations in Coral Springs

Every region of Florida and our country have problems with mold and other microbial growths. Damage can occur quite quickly to Coral Springs' homes, where dormant mold spores have been waiting for that magic ingredient to proliferate--water. What can you do to safeguard against these pesky fungal microbes?

Stopping Mold Growth Before It Begins

The moisture in the humid environment of southern Florida is ideal for mold colonization. They are very opportunistic, and since they do not require sunlight for growth and expansion, they can be hidden in the spaces under your Coral Springs crawlspace home.

• Inspect your crawlspace for dampness or a musty odor
• Floor joist and beam wetness from above leaks? Get that drip repaired
• Ensure proper ventilation to control humidity levels and improve IAQ in the above living space
• Consider installing a polyethylene 6-mil thick vapor barrier over the soil
• Keep the RH inside the home to about 40% by using the HVAC system
