Where (& How) to Check for Mold Growth in Your Home
Mold is the most unwelcome visitor you can have in your home. If you notice it, you need to get rid of it before it becomes an even bigger problem. Remember that mold is a living growing organism, and in the right conditions, it won’t just die out over time. Luckily, our mold remediation experts at All Dry Services know the types of environments that mold loves. Make sure you keep an eye out for potential mold growth in these areas of your home.
Attics & Basements
These additional spaces connected to your home can lack proper ventilation and temperature control. Mold can grow in just a day in the right environment. One of the key factors for mold growth is moisture. With pipes often running through these areas of your home, one small leak can cause water damage followed by a mold outbreak.
Your bathroom is a high moisture environment, which can be perfect for mold growth. With proper ventilation, you can ensure that moisture doesn’t linger in your shower and cause a problem.
How to Recognize Mold
There are thousands of species of mold, but they do share some common characteristics. If you see an area of your home with a moist, muddy appearance, it might be mold. The color can range from black to white, or even pink to green, so don’t dismiss it just based on the color.
Mold often has a strange smell to it. If you smell something musty or sour, it’s likely a bad sign. Lastly, water damage and mold go hand in hand. If you notice water damage it’s better to be safe than sorry and call the pros at All Dry Services!
