Mold caused by humidity issues can be a common uninvited guest in garages, and it doesn't discriminate between old and new ones. While AHG&M ensures optimal ventilation in your garage's construction, it's crucial to complement this with some best practices: \tManage Moisture Proactively: Any moisture that clings to your car in wet snowy conditions should be dealt with immediately—wipe it off and use a squeegee to clear it from the garage floor. (The slope on your concrete pad is not steep enough to get all the water out naturally) \tMaintain a Constant Temperature: For garages that are heated and insulated, it's vital to keep the temperature consistently above 10 degrees. Warmer air can hold more moisture, which is less likely to condense on surfaces if they're kept warm. This helps prevent condensation from becoming a problem, especially compared to the fluctuating temperatures that can lead to moisture buildup and eventually, mold growth. \tElevate Storage Solutions: Keep boxes and wooden items off the floor by mounting them on walls or hanging them from the ceiling to avoid moisture transfer. \tUse a Dehumidifier: Investing in a dehumidifier can make a significant difference in maintaining a dry garage. Alternatively, products like silica gel and molecular sieves can absorb excess humidity. \tCheck Downspouts: Regularly inspect your downspouts to ensure they're functioning correctly and not directing water towards your garage. \tApply Protective Floor Coating: A protective coating such as polyurethane or epoxy, or even a quality floor paint, can provide a moisture barrier for your concrete slab, offering additional defense against mold. Following these steps diligently will significantly reduce the risk of mold taking hold in your garage, helping to keep it in pristine condition.
