Fall Leaves Spawn Mold Spores

Besides beautiful colors, fall brings two things — rain and mold spores. Those heavenly color displays as the leaves change are just the beginnings of a mold nightmare. When the leaves fall, they create a carpet on the damp ground. Deep in the protective layers mold growth starts immediately. The simple task of raking leaves can dump literally thousands of mold spores on your skin and clothing — mold spores you then track into your home, school, church or office building. If this activity coincides with a nice fall rainstorm, then conditions are ideal for an explosive growth of mold.

One way to reduce the growth of mold and mildew is to keep the relative humidity in your home or office building low … below 40%. If you don’t know what the relative humidity is in your home, you can buy a hygrometer (about $10 at your local hardware store) and check your humidity levels. If you discover that your home has a humidity level above 40%, a simple fix is to purchase a dehumidifier (again at any local hardware store or places like Target or WalMart).

Sadly, no matter how well you prepare, it is impossible to keep airborne mold spores from penetrating your home or commercial building.  And even though you may be vigilant about keep humidity levels low, a simple roof or plumbing leak can spell disaster. Luckily mold and mildew can be easily treated with MoldOff®.  MoldOff is an innovative product unsurpassed in mold removal — it does not contain chlorine bleach and is environmentally friendly and biodegradable.
