Do you have any mold spores in your garage? Here’s What to do!

We normally don’t think much about the garage when the subject of mold problems developing is mentioned, but actually mold can plague your garage just as it can appear in any other areas of your home. The good news is, if you indeed think there’s garage mold, it’s generally less difficult to remove it from your garage than from other parts of your house. The worst difficulty you’ll face regarding mold removal ~ besides using the correct disposal methods and taking the proper safety precautions ~ is making sure you get all of it out. When it comes to your whole household, this can sometimes involve expensive excavating of the surrounding walls and perimeter. On the other hand, finding and removing mold from your garage walls is much easier than uncovering and eliminating mold from all of the interior walls of your entire home.

The strategies necessary for thwarting garage mold are the same as for stopping any other kind of mold. Mold grows in a dark, moist, unventilated environment. Accordingly, you can prevent mold by 1) keeping your garage as dry as possible, 2) not allowing the garage to be completely dark, and 3) making sure it’s well-ventilated continually.


If You’re Starting from Scratch

If you’re building a new garage, then make it from materials inhospitable to mold. First, construct your garage using metal, not wooden studs. Metal studs will require additional skills and tools, but a skillful and experienced contractor won’t have any trouble constructing a premium-quality garage.

When it comes to siding, vinyl or pre-coated aluminum are optimum for your garage walls. If you choose materials other than wood, you’ll forestall the possibility of mold spores, and also keep away wood-eating pests.


Stop the Mold in Your Garage Right Now

If your garage isn’t made out of metal or some other mold-hindering materials, then you need to be more meticulous to keep mold from ever getting into the garage. First, reduce the air’s moisture content in the garage as much as possible. Use an air dehumidifier. The easiest way is to make it a daily goal to keep the garage well-ventilated: Leave the garage door open whenever you’re there, which will regularly air it out.

You must keep all moisture out, so mold won’t have a chance to form in the first place. Water can enter your garage if there are any leaks. Thus, always keep the roof of your garage in good condition. Allowing fresh air in, and maintaining the garage overall, will stop garage mold from developing. Sunlight will also help keep any mold away.



Garage Mold Removal

Garage mold may cause respiratory problems for people who are sensitive to it. If that’s the case, then eradicate it right away. Removing mold from your garage isn’t easy. During the process, mold spores can get stirred up, which can cause major irritation. Avoid any possible complications: Hire a licensed professional to do a thorough job.


Maintaining Your Garage Door


A garage door actually plays a larger role in your home’s value and curb appeal than you think. If you keep your garage door in tiptop shape, you’ll protect your garage for many years to come. An insulated garage door makes the most sense for preventing mold.

How long will your garage door last? If the construction materials are of outstanding quality, your garage door will be tougher than average. Garage doors these days are superior to those of generations ago, because they’re manufactured according to stricter safety standards. For instance, a prime-quality garage door provides an effective barrier for optimal heat-transfer reduction. Hardware and door sections of excellent-quality garage doors often come with better warranties.


Keep it in working order.


  1. Operate the garage door one full cycle (open and closed), making sure it moves smoothly.
  2. Check the automatic reversing garage door opener feature: When the door is on its way down, grab it, giving it a little resistance, to see if it will reverse. If it doesn’t, the opener’s sensitivity needs adjusting.
  3. If your garage door doesn’t reverse, or if you notice any other issues, hire a garage door expert.

24 Festive Tasks: Door 22 - New Year’s Eve / St. Sylvester’s Day: Tasks 1-3 AND Door 18 - Hanukkah: Task 1

UPDATED: Added Star Rating Stats

I can't believe I posted this yesterday without them!



2020 Reading Goals

Pretty much the same as this year: Read more books by women writers than by male authors, diversify my reading, and keep on exploring the world of Golden Age mystery fiction.


The Around the World reading challenge -- which is also to be continued in 2020 -- this year has taken me to places of the world that aren't exactly part of my normal reading fare, and I think visits to 46 countries (8 in Africa, 10 in the Americas (11 if Puerto Rico were counted separately), 13 in Asia and the Middle East, 2 in Oceania, and 13 again in Europe) is a pretty decent tally for the first year. I hope things are going to continue in a similar vein next year.


My Golden Age mystery reading plans are probably going to cross the "diversifying" aims to a certain extent -- they already did this year -- for the simple reason that the vast majority of Golden Age mystery writers were Caucasian.  But that just can't be helped, I suppose.

The key, obviously, is in the intersection of genres and ethnicity: 25 of the 27 books by non-Caucasian authors I read were something other than mysteries; or put differently, virtually all of the 124 mysteries were by Caucasian authors (including all of the 92 Golden and Silver Age mysteries, which in themselves account for 2/3 of all my mystery intake).  I'm not sure I'm going to be able to do much about those statistics -- nor do I very much want to, as long as I manage to make decent progress with my Around the World challenge and manage to get in a fair amount of non-Caucasian books in all the other genres.

 My question: Is 2020 going to be a good reading year for me?


Miss Austen's Collected Novels are one of the larger volumes on my shelves, so I decided to seek my answer there.


The answer: "[impor]tance in assisting the improvement of her mind, and extending its pleasures."


That sounds rather promising, doesn't it?

(And I'm taking it as an additional good sign that the answer is from Mansfield Park, wich was the first novel by Austen that I read -- and the book that made me fall in love with her writing in the first place ...)




Dreidel Spin for First Book of the Year

This is a pick from some of the books that my BFF, Gaby, gave me for Christmas and my birthday this year:

ש (Shin) - Sarah-Jane Stratford: Radio Girls



... and the dreidel picked:


 So, Sarah-Jane Stratford's Radio Girls it is!
