Mold is the last thing any homeowner wants to find. It damages your home and may impact your health. It can be difficult to get rid of. Preventing mold from forming in the first place is always the best option. But if you do have a mold problem in your house, it is possible to clean it up safely and make sure it does not come back. It is important to follow the correct steps and use the right tools for the job to get rid of mold in your house.

Mold is a type of fungus that grows in damp, warm, and humid environments. It can be found indoors and outdoors, and there are many different types of mold. Mold spores are present everywhere in the air and can enter homes through windows, doors, and even on clothing and pets. Once mold spores find a suitable environment, such as damp and warm areas, they can grow and spread.



Where Mold Comes From

Mold thrives in moist environments, so any place that collects moisture is at risk of mold growth. Common sources of moisture include:

Leaking pipes: A leaky pipe can create a wet environment conducive to mold growth.

Roof leaks: If your roof is leaking, it can lead to moisture in your attic or ceiling.

Condensation: Poorly insulated windows and walls can cause condensation, providing moisture for mold.

Poor ventilation: Areas such as bathrooms and kitchens that lack proper ventilation can trap moisture, making them prime spots for mold.

Flooding: After a flood, water can seep into walls, carpets, and other materials, creating an ideal environment for mold.

Preventing Mold

Preventing mold requires controlling moisture levels in your home. Here are some tips:

Fix leaks promptly: Address any plumbing leaks or roof damage immediately.

Ensure proper ventilation: Use exhaust fans in bathrooms and kitchens to reduce humidity.

Control humidity: Maintain indoor humidity levels between 30% and 50%. A dehumidifier can help control humidity in damp areas.

Keep surfaces dry: Wipe down surfaces that get wet, especially in bathrooms and kitchens.

Clean gutters: Blocked gutters can cause water to seep into your home.

Use mold-resistant materials: When remodeling or building, consider using mold-resistant drywall and paint.



How the HYLA EST Can Help

The HYLA EST is a state-of-the-art air cleaning system that helps improve indoor air quality and can aid in mold prevention. It uses a water filtration system to trap airborne particles, including mold spores, which helps prevent them from circulating in your home. The HYLA EST has several features that make it beneficial for preventing mold and improving indoor air quality:

Water filtration: This system captures and neutralizes particles in the air, including mold spores, using water as a natural filter.

Air purifying: The HYLA EST purifies the air, removing pollutants and allergens that can contribute to respiratory issues.

Surface cleaning: The HYLA EST comes with attachments that allow you to clean carpets, upholstery, and other surfaces, helping remove mold spores and other allergens.

Humidity control: By purifying the air, the HYLA EST can help regulate indoor humidity levels, making your home less conducive to mold growth.



When you clean with the HYLA, the air with dust and other particles enters the HYLA water pan through the inlet tube, creating an upward stream of water – the HYLA Geyser. This effect ensures optimal conditions for filtration by creating a mixture of droplets and dust particles, while the NEW HYLA DEFENDER blades cut larger water droplets into microdroplets and disperse them at high speed. The HYLA EST is extremely capable of reducing and eliminating pollutants within the air in your home, increasing your indoor air quality while reducing need for dirty filters, harsh chemicals, and more.
