Mold growth is often discovered long after it has invaded the home, hidden behind the walls and in the dark corners and spaces within your home or business. The presence of mold in a home or business can have adverse health effects, especially for those with asthma or other respiratory issues. Studies have also shown that long term exposure can lead to healthy individuals becoming sick, excess fatigue, having sinus problems, fungal infections, and even poisoning.

Due to the many health problems exposure to mold can cause, it is vital to address the issue immediately – and properly.

While handing some mold in your bathroom or storage closet seems like an easy enough feat, that’s only the mold that you can see. Mold spores are able to travel quickly and efficiently, settling down in areas you can’t see without a bit of demolition – like behind the walls in your bathroom. Mold growth can be surprisingly expansive, even when only a small amount is visible.

Mold is highly attracted to moist, damp, and warm surfaces with plenty of organic material to thrive off of.

Which is why it is common to find mold buildup in the following areas:

Mold can also be found within the walls, under the floors, and throughout the rooms closest to these areas. This is because mold spreads easily; microscopic mold spores are able to travel through the air and settle in other areas with favorable conditions. Mold eats away at the organic material, which is why infected areas in a home or business like drywall, support beams, ceilings, and flooring soften and break apart.

How did mold get in my house?

Mold is a microscopic organism that is naturally present everywhere. It’s why bread left on the counter or food left in the fridge for too long begins to grow it – the source wasn’t contaminated, mold spores are just everywhere and with the right conditions, settle in and big to populate into a noticeable colony of fungi.

Events such as a leaky or burst pipe, improperly sealed windows or doors, storm damage, fires, and flooding can expedite ideal conditions for mold growth. Inadequate repairs or repairs performed well after the damage has set in can also further contribute to the growth of mold.
