4 Places That Mold May Be Hiding In Your Home
So where might there be mold in your home? Here are a few problematic places that you might need to check.
- Hiding behind a leaking toilet: Your toilet has been running nearly nonstop and you really need to get it fixed. This is a plumbing problem obviously but it can lead to a mold problem too. If the leak in your toilet is coming from the tank, bowl, or from cracking sealant, it can easily become a way to mold to grow in your home.
- Growing in a dark corner of a damp room: You’ve been battling the humidity and you aren’t sure if it is leading to mold and mildew growth in your home. It may be time to check some of the darker, less ventilated parts of your home. Those spots behind the furniture or darker corners of the house can easily become an environment for mold.
- Sneaking under flooring or carpet: Battling with a leak somewhere in the home? If so, there is a chance there is mold that is growing and spreading underneath the floors or carpets in the home. This is just one of many reasons why leaks, especially slab leaks, need to be taken care of quickly!
- Collecting in your ductwork: Last but not least, one of mold’s favorite places to show up is within your ductwork. This part of your home is often dealing with extra dust and debris, along with higher levels of humidity. This, of course, makes your ductwork more likely to encounter mold growth. This can be prevented with duct cleaning in some cases but may still pop up at some point down the road.
