PRLog - Sep. 1, 2011 - (MEMPHIS, TN – September 1, 2011) Studies by Harvard University have shown that between 40 and 50% of homes in North America have moisture and mold problems serious enough to significantly increase respiratory symptoms among occupants.  Mold Armor, America’s leader in mold detection, cleaning and prevention, and DampRid, the original non-electric, non-toxic, maintenance-free dehumidifier support Mold Awareness Month and aim to encourage homeowners to safeguard their families and homes against mold, mildew and moisture problems.

Disastrous to a home and its occupants, in a recent poll by Reader’s Digest, mold was ranked the 2nd greatest concern for homeowners, more threatening than lead paint and pesticides. And, according to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the average American home can be two to five times more polluted than the air outside. The EPA also estimates that Americans today spend approximately 90% of their time indoors.

“For better indoor air quality, one of the most important things homeowners can do is control indoor moisture and humidity,” said Dennis Shireman, a home care expert with W.M. Barr. “The trick is to find the right balance. 50% or lower relative humidity is the magic number for optimal comfort. Products such as DampRid Moisture Absorbers help by removing excess moisture from the air and automatically bring relative humidity to just the right level.”

If mold has already invaded the home there are several solutions available to help eradicate the problem.  Mold Armor products are guaranteed effective to clean mold stains indoors and outdoors, prevent mold stains for up to 3 months, and they also offer a DIY kit that tests for the presence of mold.  

To help combat mold, mildew, and moisture issues, Mold Armor and DampRid recommend:
•   Control moisture levels and monitor humidity indoors.
•   Dry wet areas immediately.
•   Identify problem areas in the home and correct them.
•   Equip your home with mold-resistant products.
•   Improve airflow in the home.
•   Test for mold in the home with a DIY test kit.
