Things such as drying clothes indoors, using a humidifier over 55%, problems with your HVAC system and leaking pipes can all create an excellent environment for mold to live. If the humidity is too high in the home and you do try to dry out items like clothes, it will take a lot longer for them to dry and mold can begin to grow on these surfaces.

Mold is a common indoor concern among homeowners and property owners. It seems to be a more common problem now. More than 20 years ago, this was a rare concern. One reason could be that fewer people are paying attention to regular home upkeep, because they spend much of their time on work. A more compelling reason is the requirement to seal indoor air, an activity that has an inherent flaw of trapping air contaminants indoors.
As you turn on your heating and cooling system, you will only re-distribute the particulates, which at some point reaches a threshold, and that’s when you start getting flu-like symptoms, allergies, and even dermatitis.
This is not to say that HVAC systems are to be blamed. No! These systems keep us comfortable whatever the weather is. It’s just that as we seal our homes and buildings, there should be more effort to do maintenance, inspection, and cleaning.
Mold should never be a problem if you keep your environment clean and dry. Right now, mold spores float in the air. These spores thrive on dust particles, which provide them nutrients. The only thing these spores wait to finally grow and wreak havoc is moisture.
The best way to prevent mold contamination is to keep your air dry and moisture out of your home. Recommended relative humidity indoors is 30-50%. A mold infestation can start to occur when the relative humidity reaches 60+%. Take note that it doesn’t have to take a plumbing leak, roof leak, or water intrusion for mold to grow. Even a clogged dryer vent can cause moisture buildup that leads to mold growth.
