Top Hiding Places of Household Mold

Know What Spots You Should Keep an Eye On

Mold is the last thing you want to see in your home, so when you do spot spores along your walls, ceilings, or floors, you want to identify the source and get rid of every trace of it fast. But mold can be tricky to track down, even when you know to check damp, dark places for hidden patches. We asked our mold remediation experts to identify mold’s favorite household hiding places, so you know exactly where to look when you’re worried about mold growth in your home.

The Top Five Household Mold Centers

  1. Inside your air conditioner
  2. Around fixtures in your bathroom and kitchen, especially under sinks
  3. Inside your washing machine
  4. Inside your dishwasher
  5. In your attic, basement, or crawlspace

Other Surprising Mold Hot Spots

  • Behind your wallpaper or under your carpeting
  • In your air ducts
  • Around your water heater
  • On your window seals
  • Around your chimney

What to Do When You Spot Mold

If you spot mold in the above hiding places, or anywhere else in your home, it’s best to take action right away. After cleaning the visible spores, dry out the affected areas to discourage the mold from growing back, then call a mold remediation specialist. While you can clean visible mold yourself, it takes a professional to get rid of the microscopic spores that could still be lingering around your home. Additionally, a professional has the tools and training to thoroughly check nooks and crannies that you may not be able to reach without leaving more damage in their wake.
