Where Could Mold Be?

Mold could be anywhere there is moisture in a poorly vented area. Mold is a problem in places where there was flooding, a busted pipe, a leak and other home-repair issues involving water. Mold typically grows in dark and poorly ventilated spaces, which often means it could be growing unnoticed for a significant period of time. After a moisture issue, it is essential to properly dry and clean the area or it could come back. 

Our team can quickly locate a mold problem in your home. If you had any moisture issues, every affected area needs to be carefully looked over by an experienced and knowledgeable mold inspector. If you have had mold issues in the past, it is also prudent to have regular inspections of potential problem areas where mold could come back. Allowing mold to grow unchecked can be costly to fix, and it can be inconvenient to completely remediate the area. Catching it early is crucial.

There are many different types of mold that can occur in a home and lead not only to structural damage, but some health concerns as well. Mold is difficult to find in many homes as it grows exclusively in dark and moist areas that are usually hidden somewhere in the structural areas of the home such as attics and basements. By the time mold shows up in the actual living areas, chances are that it is all through the home.

One of the most likely places for mold to form is anywhere that moisture is improperly vented. Another area of concern is if a home has ever flooded and was not completely or properly cleaned and dried after. Leaky plumbing and basement crawlspaces are other likely candidates. Mold testing can help let you know if your home is safe.

Mold can be a difficult thing to completely get rid of as the only thing it needs to continue growth is an organic material such as wood, and moisture. Both of these items are usually abundant in any home. The most likely was that moisture finds its way into the home is through faulty or leaky roofs and foundations. Both of these areas should be checked over by an experienced mold inspector on a fairly regular basis if there is any worry of mold beginning to grow, or if there has been mold in the past. Mold can be an expensive problem to deal with so be pro-active about looking for it, it can save you money in the long run. That is why mold testing is very important.
