It is recommended that you should exercise at least three times a week for a minimum of thirty minutes. Most people get about half of that recommended amount just by completing household chores and yard work. Weekly cleaning, maintenance, and monitoring of mold prone areas can help add a little physical activity to your schedule, while keeping your home a clean and healthy environment.
Be sure to also extend your monitoring and maintenance to the outdoors as well. Keep an eye out for ice dams, broken or misdirected gutters, and other areas that may introduce water damage to your home. Water damage, when left unchecked, can leave your home open to mold growth.
While there are many options for DIY mold removal, you can never be sure that it has been fully removed when you do it yourself. Professional mold remediation companies not only take care of the colonies, but the mold spores as well, and can prevent the spread of mold throughout your home with proper removal.
While National Staying Healthy Month is geared towards individual health, you should still consider making sure your home is providing you with a healthy environment as well.
