Controlling humidity and facilitating adequate air circulation are good preventative measures in prohibiting mold growth. Small measures have positive effects and advance better living conditions-
- leaving 2-3 inches between walls and furnishings allows for better air circulation
- closing windows and doors when exterior humidity levels are elevated helps control interior moisture
- periodically checking appliance and exhaust fan ducting for wear will keep moist air from escaping into the indoor environment
