If you find your home with excess damp areas or moisture, consider taking the following steps to prevent the problem from getting worse:
- Use dehumidifiers and fans to remove moisture and humidity from areas that are prone to accumulation. Running exhaust fans in the bathroom after a shower can pull humidity out of the room and keep mold and mildew from developing.
- Caulk and seal areas around windows, doors, and foundations. Moisture and condensation can develop in these areas.
- Improve the grading around your home. Sloping the ground away from your foundation will keep water from collecting around your house, which is important for basements and crawl spaces.
- Fix leaking pipes and faucets as soon as possible. Even the smallest leak can cause big problems throughout time. Take care of plumbing issues promptly.
