Black mold Mold growth in a Conroe, TX home.

3 Steps for Getting Rid of Mold Odor in Your Home

Mold commonly occurs in many homes, and mold odor can make spending time in your home less enjoyable. Mycotoxin is released by mold, causing the unpleasant, musty odor mold produces. If you’re experiencing mold odor in your home in Conroe, TX, there are several steps you can take to eliminate the smell.

1. Clean Appliances

Some appliances in your home are likely to experience mold growth as a result of dark, humid environments. Laundry machines and dishwashers can grow mold over time as they are used, and it can be easy to forget about cleaning appliances that are themselves made for cleaning. Frequently cleaning your appliances can help eliminate mold odor and mold itself, and you can also prevent new mold growth with a routine cleaning schedule.

2. Dry Out Areas

Mold thrives in dark, moist environments. Certain areas, such as basements or attics, are particularly likely to experience mold growth. In order to lessen the musty odor that results from mold growth, make sure all areas in your home are dry. Opening windows can help let in light while also drying out locations in your home. By drying out areas in your home where mold commonly grows, you can help prevent further growth from occurring.

3. Filter Air

Airing out your home isn’t always enough to completely eliminate the smell of mycotoxin, and using HEPA air filters, which are specifically made to eliminate mold, can helpfully eliminate mold odor. These filters help eliminate the humidity in your home, which contributes to mold growth. Additionally, HEPA air filters can collect the mold particles, thereby helping eliminate odor.

Mold remediation is not always a simple process, and you may require professionals in mold cleanup to fully get rid of the mold growth and the scent that mycotoxin produces in your home. Once mold is eliminated, you’ll be more likely to enjoy spending time in your home again.
