How can I prevent mold growing on the vents around my house?

i once lived in an apartment that had mold on the walls.... using a rag and some bleach did the job, but you should probably try to find and then stop the cause instead of relying on band-aid solutions. inhaling all that mold can be unhealthy.

If you get a dehumidifier, the moisture in your home's air will be greatly reduced. Once that occurs, it will be easier to keep the mold down.

Go to the grocery store and buy a spray bottle of Tilex. This is a light solution of Clorox and other stuff for cleaning showers. It is not wildly toxic, although hardly green. But it's an easy way to apply a solution that will stop the mold. Reapply after rain, if it gets washed off.

It sounds like you have a problem with high humidity in your home. Make sure you only open windows on days that have a low humid factor. Never smoke in your house. This only makes it worse. Try running a dehumidifier and keep your bathroom doors closed during and after showers and baths.
