My Milkshake Brings All the Mold to the Yard

6/14/2018 (Permalink)

Mold growth on gypsum board, also known as drywall!

Yes, that same mold we so desperately try to get rid off because it’s full of bacteria, that same mold we hate seeing, it’s actually everywhere! And it is way more common than you actually think.

Not only can mold be easily found outdoors (since it grows naturally there) but, believe it or not, it can grow indoors pretty much on almost everything. To give you an idea, here’s some places you can find mold:

  1. You can find mold in humid places: Under your sink, over your old leaking pipes, on your bathroom, your basement… Pretty much anywhere that’s humid and has water nearby.
  2. You can find mold in wood:Wood walls, wood floors, all kinds of wood products can bring mold into your house whenever they’re exposed to humidity.
  3. You can find mold in various foods: Old veggies, bread, fruit and even meat can grow mold pretty quickly too.
  4. You can find mold in your yard!: Yes, mold can also grow in your very own backyard, since fallen leaves are a perfect place for mold growth.

But don’t worry, although mold is everywhere, there’s still a lot you can do to prevent it from spreading through your home. Call SERVPRO of Park la Brea if you have any questions in regards to mold or bacterial growth!
