Where to Look For Mold
Where to Check For Mold
Mold Remediation is vital for a home and a business because it keeps the building looking new, neat and promotes safety. If mold is left untreated, it can pose a serious issue. For some DIY inspection, here are some tips on where to look for mold.
Areas With Moisture – Mold forms most often in areas that have a lot of moisture. For homes, rooms that have a lot of humidity usually produce moisture, which will result in mold.
Ceilings & Walls – These areas are popular for mold because they are areas where moisture can be trapped. In addition, the piping for the houses tend to drip and may leak. Once mold starts in these areas, they will spread and eventually become visible. It is important to catch the mold early on so there is less contamination.
Shower Tile & Shower Curtains – The most common place for mold to grow in a household is in the shower. This is because it is the place with the most moisture, coming from the heat of the shower along with the water. In addition, the dirt and grime from your body combines with shampoo which will latch onto the curtains. Unless you wipe down your curtains, excess moisture can cause mold to form.
