How to Prevent Indoor Mold Growth During the Winter

Winter is more than just a time to bundle up and make soup; these cold, wet months are a prime season for mold growth. Snow and rain means moisture is tracked inside our tightly enclosed buildings where it has no means of escape. Windows are kept closed and doors are left open for only as long as it takes to get in and out, so there’s little fresh air turn-over.  Furnaces that make rooms warmer than outside also create condensation.

It’s easy to forget a load of laundry in the washer overnight (or longer) with extremely busy schedules. Washing machines and dryers are often kept in basements, a prime location for mold growth in homes due to increased...

Summer Nor’easter Leads to Serious Mold Concerns

Last weekend, the DC metro area saw heavy rainfall from the unseasonal “Nor’easter” that led to flooding in many areas.
