Simple Tips and Expert Help to Deal with Mold

Mold, a type of fungus, can grow both inside and outside. It can sneak into your house through open doors, windows, air vents, and heating or cooling systems. You can also find mold in the soil and plants. It can cause health problems like allergies, asthma, breathing issues, skin irritation, and headaches.

If you think you have mold at home, it’s wise to call experts who handle it. They’ll check your house for mold and get rid of it. At Break The Mold, we’re skilled in finding out what kind of mold you have and creating a plan to remove it.

Sometimes, mold hides in hard-to-reach spots, like behind wallpaper or in your heating and cooling system’s ducts. In these cases, experts must be extra careful not to spread mold spores around your house or office.

How to Prevent Mold

Mold prevention is essential to avoid health issues and property damage. 

Here are some tips:


  1. Fix leaks right away. Mold loves damp places, so even small leaks can encourage mold growth.
  2. Keep your home airy. Good airflow helps prevent mold.
  3. Use a dehumidifier in wet areas like basements or bathrooms.
  4. Clean any mold you see immediately.
  5. Avoid condensation by using fans or opening windows when you shower or cook.
  6. If you’re allergic to mold, try to avoid it. Use air purifiers and keep humidity low in your home.
