These Three Areas of Your Home Need Mold Testing the Most

Because mold often grows in dark, damp, hidden places rather than in plain sight, you may not be aware of it unless you experience symptoms or smell odors. However, we know the best places to look, so you can rest assured that we won’t allow a mold problem to go unnoticed in your home. Here are three areas in your home that are particularly prone to mold:

  1. Attic- When your attic is not sufficiently insulated, moisture can accumulate and create the ideal environment for mold to grow. In the winter, the warm air inside your home can leak into the attic. Here, the warm air can come into contact with the cold air outside your roof, creating condensation and making your attic a moist place for mold growth. In the summer, the humidity outside can enter your attic and promote mold growth too.
  2. Crawlspace- If you have a crawlspace, the conditions within it are a lot like your attic. Because it is right up against the bare ground, the damp soil creates the moist conditions mold needs to grow. Since crawlspaces are dark and often have vents that let in more moisture, it’s no wonder that they are common places where mold testing is a good idea.
  3. Bathrooms- While your bathrooms are not out of sight as your attic or crawlspaces are, they are obviously very moist and humid places. Poor ventilation in your bathrooms can make the chances of mold growth higher too.
