On every single window seal in my house,
we have mold that appears every week. I have been cleaning it off with
bleach, but I want to know how to make it stop. All the windows are only
2-3 years old, and we have recently insulated our house with foam. Is
there anything we can do? [December 6, 2004]

What you need to use a strong killer like 10% hydrogen peroxide [from beauty
supply store], or, better yet, use a low cost Mold Home Remedy Recipes available at
or boric acid formula. You need to find and fix
the water source that enables the mold to grow. The most likely culprit is
high humidity [60% or higher indoor humidity level]. Buy a $30 digital
hygrometer from a large hardware store, Home Depot, or Lowe's to check your
indoor humidity through out the house on a year-round basis. You may need to
use a programmable dehumidifier to keep the humidity to a mold-discouraging
30 to 40%. Another possibility is that your home contains elevated levels of
airborne mold spores, a very serious problem for your home and health.
