5 Locations Mold Can Grow in Your Home

Discovering mold damage in your Shotwell, NC, home can feel overwhelming. Especially if you're not entirely sure where the problem may be located. Here are five locations that many local mold remediation professionals recommend looking for the problem.

1. Basements

The basement can be one of the most common places to find mold as they are often dark and somewhat damp. Fortunately, there are many steps you can take to protect your basement from these problems, such as the installation of a sump pump.

2. Kitchen

The kitchen area can also be a location where mold or mildew growth can be found. If you believe there may be an issue in your kitchen it's best to check areas such as under the sink, or behind a refrigeration unit first as both of these may be areas of potential water damage.

3. Bathrooms

Because bathrooms are often areas of high humidity it's not uncommon to find mold damage in these locations. One mitigation step you can take is to run a fan anytime you take a bath or shower to help cut down on humidity levels.

4. Attics

Attics are another area where mold growth may be found, as a leak in the roof can lead to the creation of damp areas. This is why it's important to deal with any roof damage as soon as it occurs.

5. Ventilation

Mold can also find its way into ventilation units such as the air conditioners. If you believe this may be the case a professional can perform a test to confirm. The ventilation unit will then needs to be dismantled and thoroughly cleaned.
In many cases mold damage, can be found in dark areas of high humidity such as basements, attics, kitchens, bathrooms, and even in ventilation. Fortunately, mold remediation professionals have the tools and experience needed to deal with such problems. If you have any questions these professionals may be able to help.
