Good ventilation is one of the best ways to prevent mold. But how do you go about improving indoor air ventilation? Below, we provide some tips to help.

Bring in as much fresh air as possible

Fresh, outdoor air can do wonders for your home or business. So, when possible, open up multiple windows and doors so you get a good breeze blowing through your building. You can also place fans in strategic places of your home to further improve air flow.

Use pleated air filters

Of course, you can’t always have your doors and windows open. In these instances, you rely on your HVAC system to keep your building comfortable. Thankfully, many HVAC systems allow you to install pleated air filters. These air filters will help trap virus particles, mold particles, dust, and more, preventing them from floating around your building.

Use portable air filters

The pleated air filters you use in your HVAC system will catch a lot, but not everything. Portable air filters can further filter the air while allowing you to place it anywhere in your home.

Turn on your exhaust fans

Mold grows when moisture is trapped in your home. This is most likely to happen in your kitchen and bathroom—two high-moisture areas. By turning on the exhaust fan after you cook and shower, you can remove this moisture and prevent mold growth.

Use fans whenever possible

As we alluded to previously, fans can help improve air flow in your home or office. We recommend placing them as close to an open window or door as possible to help the fresh air travel further into your home. Ceiling fans are also a great way to improve air flow.
