Re: prevention methods for indoor mold growth



Wrong approach.  Stopping the migration of moisture creates a wet area and
creates the idea location for the development of mold.

Better is to make the house positive pressure and keep a very slow air flow
out through the wall.  Trapping moisture causes mold to form.
