Posted in Mold Removal, on May 07, 2021
Mold is tricky, and it’s not always readily visible. In fact, mold is typically found in out-of-the-way places throughout your home. If you think that mold might be the cause of some strange smells or unpleasant odours, it might be time to inspect for an outbreak.

Discovering Mold in the Home
Mold outbreaks are challenging for homeowners. It's not uncommon for an infiltration to grow exponentially entirely out of sight. Because of the potential health risks, it's important to properly inspect the outbreak and determine the species. Then it's time to provide the proper removal and remediation to completely restore the space.
Basement mold is usually the result of excessive moisture. The fact is, mold thrives in basements because the environment is damp, humid, and dark – perfect for mold to grow and spread. Depending on the scope of the outbreak and the species of mold, professional mold removal may be necessary especially if black mold is found.
Mold in Drywall
Porous surfaces like drywall tend to absorb moisture and can perpetuate mold growth as a result. Walls made from drywall are susceptible to mold when there is surface moisture for mold to sustain it. More than that, drywall material offers the mold a lot to feed on. Whether there's a slow water leak or a severe flood, drywall needs immediate remediation.
Mold on Pipes
Typically, plumbing pipes are found in closed, dark spaces – the ideal conditions for mold to thrive. These spaces are mainly out-of-sight, so detecting a mold outbreak can be difficult. Leaking plumbing pipes can easily cause moisture build-up and mold growth. The problem for most homeowners is that most outbreaks that are not visually accessible go unnoticed until something smells bad.
The attic happens to be the most perfect environment for mold to grow. It’s a space where moisture accumulates – it's dark and usually warm – and often, there is little or no ventilation. Worse still, the attic and roof cavity is hidden from sight in most residential homes. Indeed, things can get out of control quickly the longer a mold outbreak is unnoticed or untreated.
