Phoenix Home Contractor, Republic West Home Announces Guidelines for Replacing Windows in Phoenix to Avoid Health Issues Caused by Mold

Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) April 10, 2013

As the winter months come to a close, Republic West Home offers tips on how prevent health issues that may arise as a result of the moisture which accumulated around homeowners’ windows over the winter months.

Mold growth occurs whenever an organic substance (like wood or cardboard) comes in contact with moisture for an extended period of time. During the wet winter months, mold growth along window sills, frames, glass and tracks is fairly common in Arizona. However, living with mold can be hazardous to a person’s health. Not only does the presence of mold in a household worsen allergies but it can also agitate asthma sufferers and irritate lungs.

“Far too often we see homeowners trying simple remedies for mold which are ineffective and can damage windows. Replacing windows is the best way to safely and completely remove mold to ensure the problem won’t return in the dry spring and summer months,” explained Linda Zimmerman, Vice President of Republic West Home.

One of the main sources of mold in window frames is condensation. To reduce the risk of mold inside a home, Republic West Home suggests:

  •     Double or triple pane windows. These provide better insulation and preventing this condensation from occurring inside a home.
  •     Discontinue the use of humidifiers indoors which increase the amount of moisture in the air.
  •     Add ventilation or exhaust fans. Air circulation keeps moisture from settling around the house and keeps mold at bay. Increasing the air circulation at the window surface can help prevent warm moist air from becoming stagnant around the cold window surface where the condensation can occur.

If moisture persists around windows and mold returns, the professionals at Republic West Home recommend replacing the windows as soon as possible to maintain health and prevent mold spores from propagating.
