Mold prevention isn’t just a very big deal. It’s also pretty important that all homeowners (to buy a house), each tenant (upon signing a lease), and each investor (upon closing on a house) should be required to taking a special class on how to deal with mold prevention. In fact, the need for such classes has been growing by the thousands as mold issues continue to mount throughout the nation. While some people are lucky and the mold doesn’t turn into a huge problem, others’ mold problems could result in serious health concerns, such as chronic asthma, or worse.Do you want to learn more?

So, what should you expect to learn when taking a Mold Prevention class? First of all, you will learn how important it is to regularly ventilate any room that has a mold problem, and to do so without getting rid of the moisture completely. If you have a large window, for example, you may want to consider opening it up slightly to allow some air flow, but you should also ventilate the space as much as possible. Too much moisture, especially if it is coming from condensation from your swimming pool or leaking pipes, can actually cause a lot more structural damage to a house than just mold issue.
You will also learn the importance of using non-porous building materials wherever possible. Even though it’s relatively unlikely that your new bathroom suite will harbor any mold growth air purifiers, it’s still a good idea to purchase one and use it wherever possible. If you buy a house that has an existing sealed fireplace, you must also make sure that you seal up the fireplace – as well as the space around it. Otherwise you may end up with a very nasty health issue. Also, you’ll want to avoid using water based paints and polishes because they are likely to attract mold spores and encourage the growth of bacteria and mold spores.
