10 Most common areas for mold growth in your home.

Mold is a living organism that belongs to the fungi family (like mushrooms, yeast, and even some  cheeses like blue cheese).

According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) mold can grow on virtually any organic material as long as moisture and oxygen are present. There are molds that grow on wood, paper, carpet, food, and insulation. Because mold eats or digests what it is growing on, it can damage a building and its furnishings. If left unchecked, mold eventually can cause structural damage to building materials.

10 Places to Watch for Mold Growth in Your Home:

  • Underneath kitchen sinks
  • Underneath or behind refrigerators
  • Bathroom shower or under sink
  • Behind walls that also house plumbing
  • Stacks of damp or wet newspaper or cardboard boxes
  • Around air-conditioning units
  • Wallboard or around windows that leak
  • Under carpeting that may have become wet
  • Attics & Crawl Spaces
