Residents can help minimize mold growth in their apartment homes by taking the following actions:
"¢ Open windows. Proper ventilation is essential. If it is not possible to open windows, run the fan on the apartment air-handling unit to circulate fresh air throughout your apartment. Immediately report to the management office any inoperable windows or doors.
"¢ In damp or rainy weather conditions, keep windows and doors closed.
"¢ If possible, maintain a temperature of between 50 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit within your apartment at all times.
"¢ Clean and dust your apartment on a regular basis as required by your lease. Regular vacuuming, mopping, and use of environmentally safe household cleaners are important to remove household dirt and debris that contribute to mold growth.
