George says: Maintain it. First, have you’re air conditioner serviced yearly. And be sure to change the filters and thermostat batteries according to the manufacturer’s instructions. If you’re not home enough or want some help with this, call us to schedule routine mold prevention services. Second, repair leaks as soon as you find them. Check your windows when you spring clean. Make sure sprinkler heads are directed away from your house. Check water lines to toilets, refrigerators, dishwashers, clothes washers, etc. Keep gutters clear and keep trees cut back from roofs and gutters (this helps keep rodents out of the house too!). Again, if this sounds like too much, calls us to schedule semi-annual mold prevention services. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure!
