Your home should always be a safe haven for you and your family. You check the batteries in your smoke detector twice a year. You sanitize to protect yourself against colds and viruses. You may even have a security system to ensure your family’s safety. While you have a checklist for things to help protect your home and family, is moisture control on that list? Moisture control is absolutely vital to making sure that your home is clean, safe and can withstand the test of time.
Moisture Control to Prevent Mold Growth
By controlling moisture, you can prevent the growth of mold, in addition to other benefits like making your home more energy-efficient, more comfortable and less costly to heat and cool. Mold can grow anywhere there is moisture in your home: In pipes, basements or crawl spaces, ceiling tiles, wallpaper, upholstery, insulation and more.
According to the Centers for Disease Control, health effects can range from mild – sore throat, stuffy nose and coughing – to more severe in people with compromised immune systems. By having a proper moisture control system for your home, you can help prevent these issues and keep you and your family healthy.
