Laundry Rooms & MoldOctober 24, 2012 0 Comments
Laundry rooms offer the perfect climate for mold growth – heat and humidity. Taking steps to control humidity and quick clean-up can help reduce the possibility of future problems.
Keep your laundry room clean and free from excess molds:
- Don’t hang clothes or linens out to dry, as molds may collect in them and can make your allergies worse.
- Have your dryer vent cleaned at least every other year to avoid overworking your dryer (which can potentially cause laundry room fires).
- Remove laundry from the washing machine promptly; don’t leave wet clothes in the washer.
- Keep humidity in the laundry room below fifty percent. (Humidity can be reduced with a dehumidifier, an open window, a good ventilation system or a ceiling fan.)
