Hawaii Locals Take Steps to Prevent Mold Outbreaks?

2/6/2024 (Permalink)

Aloha! Our teams in Hawaii and Maui have been restoring mold damage for over twenty years. Our franchises are locally owned and operated so we understand the mold outbreak challenges that every local faces in the tropical climate of Hawi, where rain falls 184 days a year. Here are some actions locals can take to reduce the chances of having a mold outbreak in their home or business:

Implement these preventive steps to reduce the risk of mold outbreaks in your home. First, ensure proper ventilation by using exhaust fans in moisture-prone areas like bathrooms and kitchens.

Maintain indoor humidity levels between 30-50 percent with dehumidifiers and promptly address any leaks or water intrusion issues. Seal gaps and cracks in your home's exterior to prevent moisture entry and insulate adequately to minimize condensation.

Utilize mold-resistant products in high-humidity spaces and regularly clean and maintain HVAC systems to prevent mold spores from circulating. Keep an eye on your roof and gutters, clearing debris to prevent leaks.

Remove excess moisture sources, such as overwatered indoor plants, and practice proper storage. Clean bathrooms and kitchens regularly, vacuum with HEPA filters, and control outdoor drainage.

Use humidity monitors to track indoor levels, conduct routine inspections, and consult mold remediation professionals when needed.
