6 Steps to prevent dangerous mold growth in your RV- By PMP United

by Scott Horvath on

Mold growth in recreational vehicles (RVs) can be a serious concern, as it can lead to health problems and decrease the resale value of the vehicle. Here are some tips for preventing mold growth in your RV:

  1. Clean and dry your RV thoroughly: Wipe down all surfaces, mop up any standing water, apply an anti-mold spray to exposed surfaces, and run a dehumidifier inside to remove moisture.

  2. Insulate cold-condensing surfaces: Windows, skylights, roof fans, and corners are prone to condensation, which can lead to mold growth. Insulating these surfaces can help reduce condensation.

  3. Inspect your pipes: Slow leaks can go undetected and lead to water damage and mold growth. Conduct a pressure test or use leak detection fluids to find any leaks in the freshwater system, and use a septic tracing dye to find leaks in the drain-waste-vent system.

  4. Ventilate your RV: Proper ventilation can help reduce the relative humidity inside the RV, which can prevent mold growth. Open windows or use fans to circulate air, and make sure your RV has a working exhaust fan to remove moisture from the bathroom and kitchen.

  5. Monitor the humidity inside your RV: Use a hygrometer to monitor the relative humidity inside your RV. If the humidity gets too high, take steps to reduce it, such as running a dehumidifier or using a ventilation system.

  6. Use a top Quality vent like the PMP Ultra Plus Solar Vent. The vent has fully automatic operation powered by solar energy, not only cools your roof, but also reduces the load on your air conditioning system, and cuts your cooling costs with low electric power expense


By following these tips, you can help prevent mold growth in your RV and keep it a safe and healthy place to live.
