TAVARES — Four “Closing Your Florida Home” programs will be presented in February through a partnership between the Lake County Extension and Lake County Library System.
“Leaving your home for an extended period, whether for a long vacation or an entire season, can lead to concerns over problems developing during your absence,” said Julie England, Family and Consumer Sciences Agent, from the University of Florida’s Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences at the Lake County Extension. “The programs provide information to help homeowners prevent interior and exterior damage to homes caused by heat, humidity, storms and intruders.”
Florida’s humid weather provides a moist environment for mold, mildew and moisture intrusion in homes. The “Closing Your Florida Home” program provides tips on preventing and safely removing mold and mildew from fabrics, household items and interior of the home. Home intruders come in all shapes and sizes; learn ways to protect a home from intruders whether they have two, four, six legs or more.
The four “Closing Your Florida Home” programs will be held:
- Monday, Feb. 8, at 2 p.m. at Fruitland Park Library, located at 205 W. Berckman St.
- Wednesday, Feb. 17, at 2 p.m. at Leesburg Public Library, located at 100 E. Main St.
- Tuesday, Feb. 23, at 2:30 p.m. at Lady Lake Public Library, located at 225 W. Guava St.
