The Dangers of Mold in the Laundry Room
If there is mold in the laundry room, then it means that the conditions for mold growth are present - and it means that corrective action
is required. Homeowners often find mold in the laundry room because there are higher levels of humidity present. In fact, the combination of warmish air and a high level of air moisture
make for an ideal environment for mold to thrive.
More than that, if the laundry room is poorly ventilated, the air moisture quickly accumulates with nowhere to go. With such conditions, the result is mold in the laundry room. The health risks are generally low with the average mold outbreak, but risks are heightened if the mold has spread dramatically, or if mold spores have begun to circulate throughout the environment.
Yes - mold can be dangerous in the laundry room
Overall, there is no cause for concern when a mold outbreak is discovered. Unless the situation is already out of control, a typical mold breakout can be addressed effectively with professional attention. Left unattended, however, continuous exposure to mold (and spores) can cause a variety of health issues
– like sinus congestion; coughing or wheezing; and eye irritation. When there is mold in the laundry room, regardless of the scope, immediate attention is recommended.
Preventing mold in the laundry room is the best
Preventing mold is the best approach – it will avert clean-up efforts, potential health problems, and remediation costs. It’s mostly a matter of discipline and following a few simple guidelines.
• do not leave damp laundry lingering about
• keep the laundry room area dry and clean
• make sure that laundry machines are dry
• use a dehumidifier in the laundry room area
• keep indoor humidity levels at or under 45%
• ensure the laundry room is well ventilated
• water leaks should be repaired immediately
• “desiccants” can be used to absorb moisture
• clean mold deposits as soon as they appears
