Long summer is almost over. If this was your first Korean summer, you probably felt how humid the peninsular weather could be. Unfortunately, we are having a fall rainy season end of the hot & humid summer. In addition, this is the season of fall typhoons, so always check our Facebook page for weather alerts.
The biggest issue during the summer season is mold. This issue is unavoidable unless you take good care of your house. We always give you advice that opens the window every day and turns the heat up once or twice a month. However, sometimes all these are not good enough because of high humidity.

One of Kim's members contacted us about the mold next to the window. Team Jason & Hannah went to the place right away. Our little client put the yellow police line against the issued spot. 😀
We already contacted the building's maintenance service, but the maintenance office needed time to prepare the issue permanently. Team Jason and Hannah still didn't want our client to breathe bad mold air, so we bring our tools and clean the issued spot temporarily. Of course, our little client still put the police line after our solution until the permanent service shows up.
We got another call from our client. It was about the mold inside the AC unit. We were a little worried because we cleaned the AC unit in this unit the only couple of weeks ago. As always, we went to the apartment right away and checked the issue. The mold was starting to spread AC units as our client told us. We asked about their ventilation habit. Due to the bad air in South Korea, they weren't able to open windows often. We cleaned and sanitized all air conditions again and advised them to open windows at least 10mins a day. Also, put the AC in dehumidifier mode when the humidity is high.
The mold issue can happen no matter what if you do not follow a couple of rules any season. High humidity or rapid change of temperature can also cause these issues. Please, check our post about how to protect your family from the mold issue.
