Keep Mold at Bay During the Cold Weather

When it comes to keeping mold out of your home and your carpets during the warmer and hot months, the best idea is often to open up your home and encourage the flow of fresh and dry air. Of course, when it comes to the colder months, this isn’t always the best advice. Below are some tips from Disaster Kleenup Thistle DKI Nevada to help you keep mold at bay this cold period.

Don’t Let It In

The first tip isn’t likely going to be a popular one, but the truth is that the best way to keep mold causing pools of water out of your carpet is to require your family and guests to remove their shoes before entering the home or at the door. If you choose this option, be sure to provide your guests with slip-on shoes or socks they can use while they are at your home. Of course, be sure to provide a secure place for your guests to leave their shoes, either outside your home or just in your entrance way.

Invest in a Coat Rack

You are probably wondering how a coat rack has anything to do with mold in your carpet, but let’s consider a common scenario.

  • You or your family members come in from the cold and the rain.
  • You immediately take off your layers of wet clothing as quickly as possible
  • In your haste, you discard these items on the floor

You pick everything up in a bundle after a minute or two and then leave it on your bedroom floor. Even though each item of clothing is only on the floor for a minute or two, this is sufficient time for water to drip (and if it’s raining heavily enough sheet) off your clothing and straight into the root of your carpet fiber where it encourages mold growth.
