  • Use mold inhibiting paints in bathroom and other damp areas
  • Use a fan in the bathroom which exhausts outdoors
  • Vent clothes dryer outside
  • Clean refrigerator and air conditioner drip pans
  • Don’t for get to clean your gutters – standing water in your gutters can leak into the eaves and potentially exterior walls.
  • Roof – check the attic for roof leaks
  • Basement and crawl space – check for moisture or standing water. Consider using a dehumidifier in your basement.
  • Consider sealing dirt basement and crawl spaces.
