Too much moisture in the air in your unit may cause mold to grow.  Help avoid or minimize the problems caused by excessive moisture by remembering the following:

  • Close your bathroom door when using the shower/bath tub and turn on the bathroomfan
  • Leave the bathroom fan running at least 15 minutesafter showering
  • Do not dry wet clothes, bath mats or towels in the bathroom or any other area of the house; instead hang them outside if possible or use a vented electric dryer
  • When cooking, use the kitchen fan (range hood fan) so steam and moisture can escape
  • During the daytime, do not close up rooms – keep doors open and if weather permits, open a window for air circulation within your home
  • When possible, keep blinds and drapes open to allow air circulation around windows
