Because mold can grow so easily, it can be found in various places throughout your home that you may not know to check. Mold is capable of growing anywhere that has moisture, darkness, warmth, oxygen, and a food source to grow on. With so many ways to grow, homeowners should take the necessary steps toward preventing and treating mold to avoid significant damage. Some factors you can control to prevent mold from growing in your home are the humidity level, immediately handling any flooding, installing breathable ventilation systems, and if possible, preventing any moisture in vulnerable areas.
Now that you know what helps mold to grow and spread, you have a better idea of the places in your home that are susceptible to mold growth. While each home has its own particular problem areas, the most common places for mold to grow include:
- leaky roofs
- air conditioners
- bathroom tiles
While we have listed the most common places to find mold, we advise you to check any place in your home that may be exposed to moisture, darkness, or humidity. To be sure your entire property is mold-free, Infinity Abatement also recommends you check vulnerable places outside your home that are exposed to the threatening elements mentioned above.
