Protection Against Mold – How To Keep Your Home Safe #TrustTyvek #healthyhome

This post is sponsored by Dupont.  All opinions are my own.



We live in New England.  My husband and I have five children and all have special needs.  We spent a great deal of time looking for a home when we moved.  We were also looking for a home where my in laws (parents) could live with us.  My father is disabled and medically fragile – the home had to be perfect.  Many of us have respiratory issues that are already compromised – a huge issue for us would have been mold in our home – we knew that right up front.


We found what we considered to be the perfect home for our multigenerational family – a home that allowed each group to have their own space yet we were all still living together.  We looked at homes with in-law apartments but that wasn’t quite what we were looking for.  We wanted them to not have to change their standard of living for a much smaller home.


Our house is a very large home – older home.  We did have inspections prior to purchasing it and did all that we could to make sure we weren’t buying a home with a mold issue.



We were very fortunate – but this is not the case for all homes.



They have been voted BEST in the market for 20 consecutive years.  They know how to do it all right!  I would prefer to have the protection against the health problems associated with mold in the walls of our home.  Do not take shortcuts with the health of your home; there are no substitutes for Tyvek® house wrap, only imposters.  Tyvek® is the standard by which all air and moisture barriers are measured for the past 30 years.

Are you building a home?  Renovating a home?  Or even buying a home?  Make sure you keep Dupont Tyvek in mind – it could save your families health and keep you from losing your investment.

    Tyvek is definitely the #1 house wrap used by builders across the US … and loved the video. I have lots of articles about repairing water problems around the house, and indoor air quality.

    Knock on wood our house is pretty well off. Alot though, arent so much.
    This is a great reminder to kinda just check up on your house every once in a while, make sure things are safe and secure.

    Thankfully our current house doesn’t have mold. We still check it out a lot. We are moving soon and I hope that we don’t have mold problems.

    This will come in handy as we transition from renting to owning a home. Thanks for the tips and we’ll definitely be looking into inspecting certain areas for mold.

    This is interesting, and I didn’t know about some of this. I used to live in a rental with mold in it. The landlord was told but didn’t care enough to do anything about it. I bought a new home that is about 3 years old, and I had them check.
