Where To Find Mold In Your House

Mar 1, 2008
Since there are so many developing thoughts involving mold and the health hazards that it has, everyone needs to seriously be aware of our homes and work places and be know where the specific locations are that seem to incite mold development the most. People will be horrified at all the places where it could originate and will grow quickly if it is not located and taken care of.

Yard furniture cushions can be things it likes to live on. A number of these cushions are made to be waterproof and do not get soaked inside, but the water and dampness that may lie on the surface could still create mold growth. Bringing the cushions indoors for winter the season is a wise idea. Shield the remainder of the outdoor furniture with plastic or vinyl to care for them. Clean any lawn cushions often with solutions designed for them when they have been in contact with much water or humidity.

Basements can be damp and stinky rooms where mold will develop. The moisture that can be found in some basements permits an excellent environment for mold to grow on papers, old furniture, or clothing that can be stored down there. Utilizing a fan or humidifier will control some of the dampness. If a basement is really damp all the time, you could want to ask an experienced professional to let you know the best way to find out and remedy the moisture hazard.

Laundry rooms will make mold due to moist or wet clothes when they are left that way for very long. A dripping washing machine may help mold to grow on wooden baseboards. If a dryer is not vented right, the humidity from the dryer heat, especially if the dryer is positioned in the basement, can let out enough moisture to produce mold.

Kitchens or bathrooms that are not equipped with adequate ventilation are excellent environments for mold. Anytime there is steam in a bathroom, it promotes mold creation. Ventilation fans always play a large role in helping to lessen this problem. Most of the time people will have ventilation fans in a bathroom or kitchen and will not use them. They can not help with moisture if they are not turned on.

In any spot there is a water situation, there is the potential for mold. Under sinks, around the toilet base, unknown behind a shower wall or bathtub could produce mold if water is present. Mold inside walls is some of the most dangerous if you do not know it is there. This may result in having to rip out sheet rock and wall studs when it is penetrated the surfaces. The smartest prevention against mold, is to take care water leaks.
