Temperature Control

Mold thrives in moist areas. Thus, humidity in the home can be the perfect element mold needs to grow.  Whether the moisture is due to summertime rain storms, steamy showers, or improper venting, controlling the temperature in your home will help to keep mold at bay.  The ideal temperature is below 77 Fahrenheit as anything higher encourages mold growth.  This is important even during the day when you may be at work, or longer when vacationing.
