Remove Excess Moisture
Dry out mops and cleaning utensils thoroughly before storing inside your apartment.
Wipe down bathroom wall and shower doors immediately after bathing, allow towels to air out. Wash and dry towels often.
Wipe down any condensation from interior windows and windowsills, wash and dry towels immediately.
Use dehumidifying crystals is suggested for closed or other area where ventilation is difficult to achieve.
Keep Things Clean
Keep closets, dresser drawers – any place where mildew is likely to grow – as clean as possible.
Soil on dirty articles can supply enough food for mildew to start growing when moisture and temperature are right.
Greasy films, such as those that form on kitchen walls, also contain many nutrients for mildew-causing molds.
Circulate the Air
When outside is drier than that inside, ventilation allows the dry air to enter, take up excess moisture, and then be carried outside.
When natural breezes are not sufficient, please use your bath/laundry room exhaust fans.
Poorly ventilated closets get damp and musty during wet weather, and articles stored in them are apt to mildew.
Try to improve the air circulation by opening the closet doors. In addition, hang the clothes loosely so that air can circulate around them.
Dry all wet clothing (including clothes wet from rain or perspirations) before putting in the closet.
