How to Prevent Black Mold Growth

By Paige Nelson

In order for it to become a problem, black mold first needs something to grow on (carpets, showers, wood, or just about anything else in your home will do), and moisture.

Mold typically takes 24 to 48 hours to grow, so limiting the amount of time a surface is exposed to Moisture and Humidity is the most efficient and easiest way to prevent black mold growth.

Black mold, or Stachybotrys Chartarum, can cause a vast array of Mold Allergy Symptoms & Ailments like;

  • Breathing Difficulties
  • Coughing
  • Disorientation
  • Eye Damage
  • Brain Fog

Due to its extremely toxic nature, it is essential that you learn how to prevent black mold growth in your home so that you can protect the health of you and your loved ones.

Opening windows throughout the day and turning on your bathrooms ventilation fan after showering are effortless ways to keep your home properly aerated and thus greatly reduce the chance for mold to grow.

If you notice any recurring Water Damage or prevailing Water Leaks in your home, get them inspected and repaired immediately. Ignoring water that is pooling up or constantly dampening various surfaces in your home is asking for black mold to grow and quickly become a rampant problem.

While it is understood that not everyone has access to emergency funds for water damage upfront, it is important to realize that allowing mold to become a problem will be more costly for your wallet and health down the line.

Just take a deep breath, set aside some money from your next paycheck or take out what you currently have in savings, and get it taken care of now.

If something spills on the carpet, you come in soaked from the rain, or a considerable layer of snow has built up on the wall around your window and is beginning to melt its way inside, take care of these things immediately.

Remember that Moisture is one of the main culprits of Mold Growth, so it is important to nip it in the bud as soon as possible, in all circumstances. It can be tempting to head straight for the shower first or convince yourself you'll get to it in a few minutes, but even that is risky.

When you take care of problem areas immediately, you are able to more effectively remove more of the moisture, and you also eliminate any possibility of you accidentally forgetting about them (we are all human, after all).
