Winter may be gone but that doesn’t mean we have escaped the elements entirely. The elevated amounts of rain we have been experiencing may but good for your plants but may also be taking a toll on your home. Escalated mold growth is a common occurrence during seasons with large amounts of rainfall. Here are some of the most common places to look for mold in your home.
The extra moist in your bathroom can make mold growth even worse for your bathroom than it currently is. Your bathroom already experiences a lot of moisture due to your shower or bathtub. You should be ventilating your bathroom during and after it is in use to make sure mold does not grow. Make sure to check all areas of your bathroom including faucets, the shower head, tile grout, and even shampoo bottles.
Sink and Toilet
We touched upon how faucets should be a place to look for mold and this can not be stressed enough. But, don’t just check the sink itself, check underneath where you may be storing cleaning supplies. The same can be said for your toilet as well. Make sure to check inside the tank of the toilet, behind it, and underneath it. Any place where water is present should be an area that you check.
It’s hard to keep trade of how humid your house gets but losing track of it can result in your mattress paying the price. All it takes for your mattress so get mold is excess moisture in your bedroom and if you like to keep the windows open your mattress is easily exposed. Try to buy a mold resistant mattress to offset this or keep an eye on the humidity in your home
Refrigerator and Pantry
Most of the food in your home will go bad eventually and if you do dispose of it, mold will begin to grow. You should also wipe down the surfaces regularly to make sure mold is not growing within your fridge or pantry as it can spread. Keep a close eye on your fridge and watch out for things like fridge drip and food or beverages that may have spilled.
