Here are 5 ways that you can prevent mould from growing in your house from the team at Life Maid Easy.
Circulation: Make sure that your house is well ventilated and yes we mean in winter months too. Open your windows in the mornings and let fresh air circulate around your house and let nature take its course.
Use dehumidifiers: Keeping humidity levels low can be your biggest weapon in your fight against mould. Switch it on for a couple of hours in a day in order to keep the humidity of your house in check
Replace carpets and Upholstery: Carpets and Upholstery can be one of the biggest breeding grounds for mould. Mould does not always smell or is visible to the naked eye, making it hard to detect. One of the ways to detect mould in Carpets and Upholstery is to check for dampness and saturation. When this happens it is time to get your carpets and upholstery changed. http://www.carpetsmadeeasy.co.nz/
Regularly clean your windows: Constant use of heaters in winter and condensation can cause mildew and mould to grow around the windows. Mould on windows can be the most common triggers for asthma during winter. When you open your windows, the air flowing into the house passes through the mould. This unhealthy air is what you breathe in, which in turn triggers asthma. Make sure you check your windows for mould and clean them regularly. http://www.windowcleanmadeeasy.co.nz
Bring your plants indoors: Plants improve the air quality by removing carbon dioxide and supplying a fresh supply of oxygen. They remove toxic substances from the air which are caused by cooking, smoking, fireplace etc.
