Mold in your house is a serious matter – and it’s an issue you need to hire an Ann Arbor mold remediation expert to deal with immediately. While a “little bit” of mold doesn’t seem like a big deal, you need to know that if you can see a little bit, there’s likely a lot more that you can’t see.

Here are five mold facts you need to know.

5 Things You Need to Know About Mold

#1. Mold can cause serious allergic reactions, asthma and other respiratory problems. That’s true even if you can’t actually see the mold, because its spores travel through the air.

#2. The best way to control indoor mold growth is to control moisture. If you hire a mold remediation expert to clear out your home, he’ll probably recommend that you use a dehumidifier and fix underlying issues that contributed to mold growth in the first place.

#3. You need to keep indoor humidity between 30 and 60 percent to decrease the odds of mold growth. You can do this by using an air conditioner or dehumidifier, making sure your bathrooms, dryers and other moisture-generating appliances vent to the outside, and using exhaust fans when you cook, clean or do the dishes.

#4. Damp or wet furniture needs to be cleaned and dried within 48 hours to prevent mold growth.

#5. Don’t install carpet by sinks or on concrete floors that have leaks or that gather condensation.
