Okinawa Prefecture has a subtropical climate, with high temperatures and high humidity, which makes it easy for mold to grow.
Also, properties in Okinawa have RC (reinforced concrete) construction, which makes them airtight and makes it difficult for moisture inside to escape outside.
In addition to using dehumidifiers and dehumidifiers to remove moisture, please refer to the following tips to prevent mold from occurring on a daily basis.
【Examples of anti-mold measures 】
１.Ventilation・・・Eliminates moisture, floating mold and dust through air circulation.
◆①Louver Vent・②After opening the Sliding door louver vent ③Activate the 24-hour ventilation attached to the toilet fan or UB bathroom dryer.

◆ Regularly open the doors of clogs, closets, and under-kitchen storage.
◆ When placing large furniture near a wall, leave a gap between the furniture and the wall.
2.Dehumidify・・・Lowers temperature and prevents condensation from forming.
◆ Using dehumidifier products in narrow spaces such as closets and dehumidifiers (machines) in the
entire room is also effective in removing moisture.
３.Adjust the temperature・・・Reduces indoor and outdoor temperature differences and prevents condensation on glass and attics
◆ Using an air conditioner for a long period of time with an excessive temperature setting (a setting that is different from the outside temperature) can cause condensation, which may lead to mold growth.
The dehumidification (dry) function of the air conditioner will also lower the temperature of the room, Please refrain from using excessive temperature settings.
4.Cleaning・・・Remove any floating mold and dust that may be a source of nutrients.
◆ It is also important to create an environment where mold is less likely to occur by cleaning the room regularly.
◆ Regular cleaning of the air conditioner filter removes the dust and mold spores that feed the mold.
