I keep hearing that this spring/summer more rain is predicted than last year totals. More rain also means more moisture that your home will be subjected too. Excessive amounts of moisture inside the home can cause mold growth and mold old growth can occur within 24 hours. Some preventive measures to heavy rain are to check your gutters for debris, make sure gutter down spouts are draining away from your home, and inspect the dehumidifier for proper operation if you have a basement.
Did you know that about 10% of the population has allergic antibodies to fungal allergens. Mold induced allergic sicknesses is mainly from outdoor exposures to naturally occurring molds. Normal indoor environments should not promote exposure to molds. All it takes is a small source of moisture to start mold growth inside your home.
