Which Places are Mold Havens?
Prevention trumps the cure, which is why you should do your best to prevent your post from inhaling any mold spores.
You can start by cleaning all those places that are prone to molds.
Here are some of those you need to check:
Cluttered Areas. Messy and cluttered areas can have poor air circulation. The items can block the air from circulating, which may lead to a build-up of condensation, making the environment moist and prone to growing molds. So, keep your spaces clean and clutter-free
Humid Places. Areas that are humid like the kitchen, laundry area, bathrooms, and the like have higher chances of growing mold. You can add ventilation fans in these areas to remove the damp air.
Air Con Ducts. Air conditioning ducts are also prone to growing molds because of condensation. You must maintain them regularly and prevent molds from growing.
Drip Pans. The drip pan of your refrigerator can also be a breeding ground for molds. Most of the time, these pans are unnoticed, so the standing water in them is an excellent growing area for molds.
Leaky Pipes. Leaky pipes are also prone to molds. So, if you have a leaky pipe at home, you need to have it repaired or replaced.
What Should You Do?
Keep your house, especially the areas that your dog visits at home, clean.
