1. Schedule Timely Cleanings
    Regular cleanings 1-2 times a year will prevent buildup and spreading of mold through air and throughout surfaces.
  2. Maximize Sunlight
    Darkness is a food source for mold, mildew, and algae to grow. By providing as much light you can deprive it of energy by trimming trees away from your home, which will also promote healthy air circulation.
  3. Eliminate Aggressive Vegetation
    Vines, Trees, & Shrubs all are a perfect recipe to breed mold & mildew on your siding. These organic systems block sunlight, and prevent moisture from being able to dry, thus creating an inviting environment for mold to thrive.
  4. Toss the Moss!
    Similar to overgrown vegetation fuzzy moss will create dark and damp conditions. If not caught early moss can take root in your roof, siding, wood, and other elements of your home.
  5. Slow Regrowth
    Use mold resistant cleaners to help adequately kill and keep mold away longer between cleanings.
  6. Keep it Dry
    Allow your sprinklers to water your lawn, not your home, especially near foundations. This helps keep moisture off your home and deters mold spores from forming as quickly. It also prevents hard water from damaging your paint, windows, or other finished surfaces.
  7. Maintain Healthy Gutters
    Make sure gutters are well-maintained. Clogged gutter systems will leak onto the house and advance the growth of mold by creating ideal growing conditions.
  8. Inspect Ventilation Ducts
    Sometimes steam from your laundry dryer can create mildew and mold on siding. Ensure the venting is clean and free to avoid moisture buildup.
  9. Pest Control Service
    Regular pest service can help detect and prevent potential widespread mold infestation in common areas that pests may gain entry to your home or property.
  10. Adequate Insulation
    If your home siding is properly insulated you’ll greatly reduce the risk of mold and mildew growth on the exterior of your home.
  11. Sealants
    If you can prevent moisture from penetrating many of your outdoor surfaces you will reduce the level of bacteria, staining, & water damage over time; thus reducing the mold and extending the life of your driveway, pool deck, brick, etc.
  12. Declutter your Spaces
    Maybe it is time for the annual clean out. The more open and clean your outdoor spaces the less bacteria will be welcome
