Is Mold Hiding in Your Home?

6/5/2017 (Permalink)

Mold is a fungus that thrives in warm, damp and humid areas. It lives both indoors and outdoors and can spread quickly through a property.


Where Does Mold Hide?


Mold thrives in moist areas. It can most commonly be found in places like showers and tubs, leaky sinks or pipes and basement walls or crawlspaces. But sometimes it hides in places you might never suspect! According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), mold may be hidden in places such as the back side of dry wall, wallpaper, or paneling, the top side of ceiling tiles, or the underside of carpets and pads. Other possible hidden locations include areas inside walls around leaking pipes, the surface of walls behind furniture (where condensation forms), inside ductwork, and in roof materials above ceiling tiles (due to roof leaks).
