Preventing Mold Growth in your Rental Property

Mold: it's something no one wants to deal with, but virtually every property manager will encounter it at some point or another. So how do you prevent mold growth in your rental property? Scott Safadi of Cal Bay Property Management recommends these easy tips:

Inspect regularly. 
Excessive moisture is often the cause of mold growth, so paying close attention to a unit's HVAC and plumbing systems can make a big difference. Look for moisture where you'd expect, like in the bathroom or kitchen, but in the unexpected places, too - like in crawlspaces and attics.

Install exhaust fans.
Every bathroom should have an exhaust fan, plain and simple. If yours don't, you're just asking for mold growth! 

Fix leaks as soon as they're spotted.
Whether you find a leak while inspecting a unit or a tenant voices concern to maintenance about a leak, you need to leap into action - and quickly. Maintain your gutters to prevent clogs, and keep an eye on thunderstorms. They can highlight leaks you never knew existed!
