Mold growth is not only unsightly, but it can also cause significant damage to your property and harm your health. We understand the frustration that comes with dealing with mold, especially when it's hiding in hard-to-reach places. We’ve gathered these helpful tips on where mold can be found and how to prevent it:

  • Basements or Crawl Spaces: Mold thrives in damp areas, and basements and crawl spaces are often the perfect breeding grounds. Make sure to inspect these areas regularly.
  • Bathroom and Kitchen Walls: Bathrooms and kitchens are high-moisture areas that are prone to mold growth. Mold can easily grow behind tiles, under sinks, and even in the grout between tiles. Keep these areas dry and well-ventilated.
  • Underneath Carpeting: Carpeting in moisture-prone areas, such as basements or bathrooms, can be susceptible. If you notice a musty smell or visible signs of mold, such as discoloration or spots, it's essential to take action quickly to prevent further damage.
  • Ventilation Ducts: Mold can easily spread through ventilation ducts, which can be a challenge to access and clean. Make sure to have your ducts inspected and cleaned regularly.
  • Any Moisture-Prone Area: Mold loves moisture, so any area that is prone to water damage or high humidity levels is at risk. It's essential to address any water leaks or flooding immediately and to keep these areas dry and well-ventilated.
