The Most Common Locations For Home Mold Growth

Written by Casey Shearns on . Posted in .

Out of all of the problems that homeowners would want to deal with, we’re willing to bet mold growth isn’t high on the list! Especially since it is one of the world’s most common allergens, it’s not to be taken lightly. It can even cause structural issues if it is allowed to spread! The best way to avoid any of the problems associated with mold growth is through prevention. Knowledge is key for this purpose, so you should have an idea of where mold most commonly grows. We’ll give you a guide to the most common areas for mold growth below!

Your Bathroom

It should go without saying that the areas most prone to mold growth will be the ones that generate the most moisture. Your bathroom is a prime suspect for this! When examining your bathroom for mold, check your showers, tubs, and sinks first. Also, make sure to check the floors around them! Water can spill around these areas when you’re washing your hands or brushing your teeth. When you take a shower, make sure to open a window or use a fan to help keep excess moisture at bay.

Your Kitchen

It may sound gross, but mold has plenty of opportunities to grow in your kitchen! With the heat that comes from cooking and the moisture from washing dishes, you need to do what you can to keep it in check. You could find it underneath your sink by checking the pipe that runs underneath it. Also, check around your refrigerator and freezer. You shouldn’t have any food that has passed its expiration date – mold loves to grow on this aged food! Make sure to drain your sponges after use as well.

Your Energy Systems

Things like your AC unit, water heater, or boiler aren’t foolproof! If they aren’t working properly, mold growth can be an uncomfortable side effect. Thankfully, it’s pretty easy to tell if your systems aren’t working. If your drains are clogged, your air quality is poor, or you’re getting uneven temperatures throughout your home, an HVAC professional can fix it! If you let these issues linger, however, mold could start to grow uninterrupted. As long as you are on top of your repairs, you should be all set!

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.
