Mold is a type of fungus that thrives in moist environments, and it can grow on almost any surface. While some types of mold are harmless, others can be dangerous to your health. Additionally, mold can cause extensive damage to your property if left untreated. To prevent mold growth in your home, here are some tips to keep in mind:

  1. Keep humidity levels in check: Mold thrives in humid environments, so it's essential to keep your home's humidity levels between 30-50%. 

  2. Fix leaks immediately: If you notice a leak, fix it immediately to prevent further damage.

  3. Proper ventilation: Proper ventilation in your home can prevent moisture buildup in areas where humidity tends to be high.

  4. Regular cleaning: Mold can grow on dirty surfaces, so it's essential to keep your home clean. 

  5. Monitor indoor plants: Indoor plants can increase humidity levels in your home, creating the perfect environment for mold growth.
