As a homeowner, you want to make sure your home is clean all year around. In addition to cleanliness, you want to make sure moisture is not building up especially in tight spaces that are receiving proper ventilation. The last thing you want is for mold to form causing you to invest in a costly remediation service. So, you need to know where in your home mold is common to grow and spread.
When it comes to looking for mold in your home, make sure you are constantly inspecting your basements. Most basements are below ground level and do not receive proper air circulation, which can be a breeding ground for mold. If your basement is prone to flooding, then it is extremely prone to mold growth. You need to make sure moisture can not get through your home’s foundation, so you need to close up the smallest crack.
One of the main areas you need to look out for mold growth is your bathroom specifically underneath your sink and in the shower. Those two places receive the least ventilation and the highest humidity rates. You want to make sure you are turning on a fan while you are showering and after you are finished so that moisture does not build up. Make sure you are leaving the shower curtain or door open, and you are wiping down your walls after use.
Many times mold grows in places that small and extremely humid, such as crawl spaces. It is common for extreme cases of mold to grow in crawl spaces because homeowners rarely check them. Make sure you are inspecting all of your crawl spaces for mold growth, as well as, checking if they are ventilated properly. Mold growth is particularly likely is the crawl space has a bare earth floor.
