How to Stop Mold Growth
Football season is just around the corner, and with it are sure to be Thursday nights, Sunday afternoons, and Monday nights with the neighbors over, everyone huddled around the living room TV, cheering on your favorite team. But as you're making your list of "to-do's" to prep for game time, consider adding "stop mold growth" to the list, just above "buffalo wings" - because while many homeowners are aware of the dangers of mold, not as many know how to stop mold growth before it starts; and as any good coach will tell you: a good offense is the best defense.

- A food source such as cotton, leather, wood, drywall, paper products, etc.
- Optimum temperatures, which is anywhere between 32- and 120-degrees Fahrenheit.
