Mold spores are present everywhere in the air we breathe, they usually die or settle into a perfect location to grow. Do not let your mobile home become that location.
Mold thrives in moist and warm environments, do not think that just because we are moving into winter and a colder season that mold will be unable to grow in your home. As the weather grows colder many people turn the heat up in their homes, if your windows are not sealed correctly, or your insulation is ripped, moisture could seep into your home. This wetness coupled with the warmth from your heater produces the perfect environment for mold.
Protect yourself and your home by making sure your windows and doors are properly sealed and check for any leaking pipes, sinks, toilets or washing machines. All of these can allow moisture into your home.
If you find mold in your home make sure to clean it quickly and thoroughly. For more information on how to do this you may visit the California Department of Public Health’s website. You may also click here to be directed to their website.
