Mold And Where It Can Hide

Mar 18, 2008
With all the emerging concerns about mold and the sicknesses that it may cause, we all need to seriously think about our dwelling places and work places and learn where the places are that might get mold growth. People might be shocked by the areas where it will begin and then grow rapidly when it is not discovered and killed.

Yard furniture cushions are items where it may grow. A number of these cushions are sewn with a waterproof fabric and are not likely to saturate inside, but the water and moistness that can remain in the folds of the cushions can still start mold development. Putting the cushions indoors during winter months is a smart idea. Protect the rest of the yard furniture with plastic or vinyl to prevent weather exposure. Clean your outside cushions often with solutions recommended for them if they come in contact with very much water or moisture.

Basements are often moist and musty spots that mold likes to live. If you put old furniture, papers, or clothing down there and might be wetness from either humidity or water in the basement it makes a splendid mold environment. Getting a fan or humidifier may control some of the moisture. When your basement is really wet all the time, you might want to get a water damage specialist to tell you the easiest way to determine and remedy the moisture problem.

Wash rooms will make mold due to moist or wet clothes are left lying around for over long. A water leaking washing machine could induce mold growth and be seen on wooden baseboards. When your dryer is not vented is not vented correctly, the dampness from the heat can create enough moisture to cause mold.

Kitchens or bathrooms that are not equipped with proper ventilation can be good spots for mold. Anytime there is moisture in the bathroom, it helps to cause mold. Ventilation fans can play an essential role in helping to reduce mold hazards. Sometimes people have ventilation fans in the bathroom or kitchen and erringly fail to use them. They never prevent moisture if they are not on.

In any place there is a water problem there is the potential for mold. Under sinks, near the toilet base, behind a shower wall or bathing tub, might inspire mold if water is there. Mold behind walls is some of the most hazardous when you do not realize it is there. This could end up in taking down sheet rock and wall studs when it is there for a while. The easiest discouragement against mold is to check for water leaks.
