How Do You Fight Mold?
Posted on Nov 14, 2014
This pernicious green and black blight can damage and discolor your siding, roof and porch if left to its own devices. What enables this eyesore to spread and what discourages its return?
Where Mold Thrives
Mold prefers the comfort of shade. Take a look at where mold grows on your home. Most likely it is more noticeable on the shadier side of the home than it is visible on the sunnier side.
Decomposing plant matter such as leaves, branches, and other shrubbery will become an incubator for molds if given the right amount of moisture. Undoubtedly, moisture, in all its forms, encourages mold to grow. While you can’t control the humidity or precipitation of your region, you can check your gutter for leaks and your sprinkler system in order to ensure it is far enough away from the house.
