Now that the cooler temperatures are here with us, we are seeing an increase in need for Calgary mold removal. Why is that, given that mold comes from moisture in the home and the fall and winter months usually bring more dry air?
The short answer has to do with the fact that, once temperatures get lower, people start closing their homes up and using the furnace more often. And so, more air starts circulating through the home, instead of outside through the windows. Once that air starts moving through the ventilation system, and from room to room, homeowners might begin to notice a musty smell that wasn’t present before.
And so, in that sense, the cooler weather doesn’t necessarily generate more mold, but makes Calgary homeowners more aware of it. What matters most is that they take action immediately. After all, mold loves nothing more than to spread, and a nice, closed ventilation system is perfect for helping it move from room to room, or from one part of your house to another.
Additionally, the colder months can bring more risk of illness, which is accentuated by mold in the home, or a general lack of air quality. So, it isn’t just a matter of mold spreading, but also having a bigger effect on your health and the health of your family. If you start to notice signs of mold – such as green or black spots, or a persistent musty smell in the air in your home – it’s important to call a Calgary mold removal specialist right away.
