What To Do If You Experience A Mold Mite Infestation?
Be aware that once a mold infestation happens, you may experience mold mites as well. The best way to get rid of these insects is not with insecticide, but rather by having a specialist clean up the mold and get rid of the moisture source that it was originally feeding off of. It is common for the bugs to leave on their own after all of this has been taken care of.
What Are Some Good Techniques To Prevent Mold Outbreaks?
As mentioned before, mold is often caused and exacerbated by moisture and wet materials. The best way to prevent it is to repair water damaged materials in the house, and limit dampness. Some methods used for this include:
- Repair any leaks in the property as soon as you detect them and remediate all of the water damage
- Reduce the indoor humidity of your home or business by using dehumidifiers and air conditioning.
- Open your windows during the day, especially when it is hot outside. This will help you reduce the humidity of your property to a manageable amount. Keep in mind that if it is raining outside you should keep your windows closed to avoid moisture.
