Concord Mold Removal: 3 Most Common Places for Mold

Written by chrischambers on . Posted in , .

If you’re considering Concord mold removal services and are concerned that you might have some mold lurking in areas that you have yet to discover, our team can help you out. At Soil Away, our experts understand why mold thrives and the areas that are prime spots for their growth. Take a look at the 3 most common places for mold and prevent it from surprising you.


Before we get into the 3 most common areas for mold growth, we’re going to give you a quick overview of mold itself. Mold is a living organism that belongs to the fungi kingdom along with other organisms such as mushrooms, yeast and mildew. Although it has its place in nature and holds medicinal value in certain situations, when it contaminates homes it can cause serious problems.

Mold in Basements

As the foundation of your home, most basements are subterranean, giving them all of the perfect conditions for mold growth including:

  • Constantly damp environment
  • Humidity
  • Lack of air circulation

To make matters worse, if your property is prone to flooding, water can make its way through the cracks in its foundation and invade your basement’s doorway or window. This trapped moisture will then evaporate, leading to increased humidity and an environment that is a prime area for mold to call home.

Mold in Attics

On the opposite end of your home is the attic, the highest level of your property. A common problem in many homes is improper ventilation, which can lead to numerous problems in the attic. Attic ventilation can become blocked by insulation or just be improperly installed in the first place. This will cause humidity levels to rise and moisture to accumulate. Other sources of attic mold can be plumbing leaks or bathroom fans. If they fail, they can lead to a constant stream of warm, moist air (or water) into the confined space of the attic.

Mold in Heaters/Furnaces

Although attics in general are prime areas for mold growth, some are even worse due to the installation of water heaters/furnaces in order to accommodate luxuries such as garden tubs and steam showers. These devices can leak and if they are not detected in time they will lead to moisture build up and thus a better environment for mold growth. If this becomes a problem, our Concord mold remediation services can help you get back on track.

Mold in Bathrooms/Showers

With plenty of water and humidity being pumped into bathrooms and showers on a regular basis, it shouldn’t be a surprise that they’re a prime location for mold growth. In addition, bathrooms typically aren’t very well ventilated, meaning the humidity and moisture lingers and gives mold a bigger opportunity to thrive.
Without the necessary steps, mold can get out of hand and lead to home damages that will cost you quite a bit of time and money in the long run. Our Concord mold removal experts can help you remediate mold and help you prevent its growth in the future.

All I have to say is WOW and FANTASTIC. I just got done building out my new professional office with Soil-Away’s construction division and they went ABOVE and BEYOND. Scott and Mike, the carpenters are skilled artisans. The project got done on time and the project came in on budget! The finished results have been blowing people away. Much better than I could have anticipated. Anyone is welcome to come to our office, Bright Light Chiropractic in Hooksett to check out the fine work they did. Simply can’t sing enough praises for them. Sorry that the picture doesn’t do the job justice. Thank you Jack and your team. -Dr. Jay

Since day one, I’ve known the owner, Jack, to be a hard-working and selfless leader. Through the efforts of him and his team, he was able to restore my flooded restaurant to tip-top shape. I was amazed with Jack’s orderliness throughout the entire process. Jack has proven to me that he is trustworthy, as both a friend and an individual in the work environment.

Highly recommend Soil-Away. A pipe in our upstairs bathroom gave and sent water down through a wall for at least a day before we noticed water dripping through our kitchen ceiling. Our insurance put us in touch with Soil-Away and they were at our house the next morning to assess the damage and dry things out. Joe, Ray and Tom were phenomenal to work with. They explained every part of the process to us and were very professional and friendly. If you have to deal with similar issues call Soil-Away, you won’t regret it.
