Florida’s warm climate attracts thousands of guests during the fall and winter months. Who doesn’t want to be able to go to the beach in November while much of the country is layered in snow? As winter changes into spring and our seasonal residents flee the rising temperatures, another guest threatens to take residence in our homes… mold.

Below are some tips to help you prevent mold from growing in your home.
It's that time of year again where we have to really worry about what is growing in and around our homes.
