Mold can be a big problem for homeowners. Not only is it unsightly, but it can also create health and safety issues if it grows out of control. At Trade-Mark Air Conditioning, we have been striving for more than 35 years to keep our Ingram customers’ homes comfortable. That commitment includes our work with heating and cooling systems as well as indoor air quality. If you are concerned about mold growth in your house, there are things you can do as a homeowner. There are also several professional solutions that our technicians can help you with.
Check for Leaks
For mold to grow, it needs moisture. Any place where there is a constant water supply, you can find mold. In the right conditions, a leaky water pipe in your basement can turn into a mold emergency. Regularly check your ceilings and walls for water spots and your pipes and fixtures for signs of leaks. If you discover a problem, call a professional to handle it right away.
Mold grows best in your home’s humid places, like your bathroom. Make certain that all of your family members use ventilating fans when they shower. You’ll want them to run for an extra 10 to 15 minutes after the shower is done. This practice will reduce the humidity by getting steam out of the bathroom. Assessing your ventilation needs can make a big difference in the number of mold spores in your indoor air. A constant flow of fresh air will push many of the spores outside.
Control the Humidity
When humidity levels rise, it can be difficult to prevent mold growth without professional intervention. Trade-Mark Air Conditioning can install a whole-home dehumidifying system that will keep your house at the right moisture level. Not only will this system prevent mold spores from finding a place to grow, but it will also keep your family comfortable during the most humid parts of the year.

We have the expertise to maintain and repair everything we install. If you want to prevent mold or simply have a more comfortable home climate, contact us today.
