Where Does Mold Hide?

10/25/2018 (Permalink)

Mold can lurk behind any corner of your home, but the mold remediation specialists at SERVPRO of Kennett Square/Oxford know just where to look to stop the spread of mold before it starts.

In Pantries and Refrigerators 

Food scraps can grow old and begin to rot and grow mold that can spread across the surface inside of a pantry, refrigerator, or any dark, moist space.  Make sure to maintain food fresh and sealed to prevent mold contamination in these areas.

Laundry Rooms

Damp clothes, a humid atmosphere, and often leaks or condensation around washers and dryers can result in mold.

In the Bathroom 

Bathrooms have significant amounts of water, often humid air, and are dark for most hours of the day. Mold can form in cabinets or on towels and clothes. Shower curtains, plain wooden walls, tiles, and floors can hide bacteria.

Behind Walls and Ceilings 

Mold growth is usually caused when a pipe leaks or bursts and dampens the wood surrounding it. Mold then grows in places where it’s out of view and inside the walls. Mold will spread quickly damaging and weakening your home. If you have had a recent water damage in your home, make sure to test the walls for possible mold.
