Summer Mold Prevention in Norwich / Windham County
The summer heat and humidity is here in eastern Connecticut and no one wants mold to creep in their homes. Here are some simple tips to keep in mind to keep the mold out:

Mold likes moisture, so make sure your surfaces are clean and dry.
- Keep the humidity under control
Running fans, air conditioners and a dehumidifier can keep your home free from mold and keep you comfortable when the heat and humidity are high
- Keep the air moving
Circulating the air in your room can help to prevent mold from growing, especially when using the shower, stove and other appliances
- Keep an eye out for condensation
Look in areas for condensation and clean immediately to stop mold before it starts

Leaks create moisture and mold loves moisture, so repair any leaks you find right away
