Places Mold Can Be Hiding in Your Home

by | Apr 27, 2022 | General, Mould

Mold can grow almost anywhere in your home that has a high level of moisture. There are certain spots that many homeowners are used to checking for mold, including basements, crawl spaces and bathroom walls, but these aren’t the only places in your home that you need to worry about when it comes to mold. If you’re concerned that your home has mold in it, call the Windsor-Essex mold removal experts at Supreme Services.

Locations Mould Can Hide in Your Home

Among the hidden places that mold can spread in your home are:

In Your Attic: If there is any type of leak in your roof, moisture can get into your attic and provide the right environment for mold to grow.

Around Appliances: Refrigerators, washing machines and air conditioners can all become a breeding ground for mold. Each of them uses a high volume of moisture when operating, and if not properly cleaned and maintained, provides the condition that mold needs in order to grow.

Around Windows: Windows are constantly exposed to moisture throughout the year, and if there are any gaps around them or as they age, more of that moisture will get into the surrounding areas in your home.

Under Wallpaper and Drywall: Mold can grow undetected in walls because it’s covered by paint or paper, but under wallpaper or drywall can be a prime spot for mould to spread in your home.

In Ceiling Tiles: Ceiling tiles often have vents or pipes running through them, exposing them to moisture on a consistent basis and creating conditions that can lead to mold growth.

Around Fireplaces: During the off-season for fireplaces, they are dark, cool and damp in many cases. This means that that mold can grow inside of a fireplace and spread quickly to the surrounding areas.

These are just some of the hidden growth spots for mold growth in your home. The mould removal experts at Supreme Services can help find and remove the mold in your home, no matter where it’s growing.
