WHERE CAN MOLD BE FOUND?

Mold can be found in several areas in the home environment. It appears most often in moist areas as little black circles or thread-like white objects. It is usually accompanied with a musty-type odor.
Mold will not grow without water or moisture. Therefore, it is important to dry water-damaged areas and items within 24-48 hours to prevent mold growth.

Some examples of places where mold can be found inside the home include:

  • Basements, kitchens, around bathroom vanities, washer/dryer area
  • The underside of carpets and pads.
  • The surface of walls behind furniture (where condensation forms).
  • Ceilings and the top side of ceiling tiles.
  • Front and back side of dry wall, wallpaper or paneling.
  • Inside HVAC systems and duct work.
