<a href="" target="_blank" class="fr_give-widget-class">Give</a><script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>December is the time of year when the temperature begins dipping below freezing in much of the country.  We all tend to close up the house a little tighter to save that heat.  Often the moister in the house increases during the winter months making it a good environment for those indoor molds to grow.  If you are one of the unlucky ones to have seasonal mold in your home now is a good time to do a visual inspection and see if mold is growing on an exterior wall of your home.  We are always more  concerned about mold on the interior of your exterior walls than on the outside. Placing those holiday cardboard boxes up against a cold exterior wall can create a growing cycle between the box and the wall.  Always remember to keep good airflow next to the wall so you won't have mold for Christmas.

Tip of the month

Fall is in the air and it is time to do some preventative cleaning to be sure those gutters are functioning properly.  More floods occur in the winter from fall leaves clogging  a home's rain gutters.  When you are putting up those Christmas lights, make sure the gutters are cleaned out.  Down spouts should drain at least five feet away from the foundation of your home.
