Ok folks, here is part 2 of Frank's Cuenca Weather Humidity and Mold Experiment. What has changed is it rained and so the humidity levels went up a bit. Even so, the humidity levels have been staying quite constant "in the house", whether its sunny out or if it is raining....and that is with several windows cracked open. We have noticed that the mold growth (in the house) still grows back but not as fast when the windows are left open during the day. This can be difficult to do when it is chilly outside. Stay tuned and follow along with this experiment to see what changes develop.

Having lived in Florida's heat and humidity, I have some experience in dealing with mold and Mildew. To keep mold and mildew from forming, the air must be kept moving and/or the humidity must be controlled. If you have a programmable thermostat that can lower the temperature and humidity once every 24 hours your problem should be solved. However not having a central heat or a/c system presents some problem, but keeping the air moving will help a lot.ReplyDelete
Thanks for the comment Michael.ReplyDelete
I wanted to know for sure that the humidity is high in the house. Actually, if there's mold present then that's a sign in an of itself, but that's just my opinion right?
