Florida’s sub-tropical climate and high humidity result in mold, pollen, and other substances being present outdoors virtually year round. What is present outdoors can be brought in through open windows and doors as well as on shoes, clothes, hair, and back packs, to name a few. Anything that has been outdoors can bring these substances in with you.
Indoors, when an ongoing presence of these substances is combined with humidity and improper thermostat settings, moisture and condensation inside your residence hall can create an environment that may foster mold and mildew growth.
Working Together, we can limit the conditions in which mildew flourishes and address it promptly when it does.
Each resident is responsible for the proper care of one’s room and shared space. Keeping your residence clean can assist in controlling air quality and reduce opportunities for the development of mold and mildew.
If mold, mildew, or the presence of other substances persist, please reach out to the Senior Director of Community Living or your building-associated Community Director for further guidance.
