Prevent Moisture Damage in your Closets

When cool and rainy weather arrives, you’re more likely to be using your coats and jackets. Storing wet jackets in your closets can cause mold and mildew, so be sure to dry them out first.


Brrr. Cold weather makes us all want to bundle up from head to toe. When you wear your coats, jackets and even boots out in colder, rainy weather, they get damp from outdoor conditions. If you store your damp coats in your front hall or mudroom closets, mildew can accumulate in confined spaces.That mildew can eventually grow into a mold problem, affecting your allergies and asthma.. House Studs recommends placing a charcoal brick in each corner of your closet to help absorb moisture and prevent the growth of mold.
