As the weather starts to warm up and beach season approaches, something that is often overlooked is mold growth within homes. Whether you're looking to sell your home, purchase a home, or stay within your current home- mold seems to be the four letter word no one wants to hear! In this blog you'll learn where the most common areas for mold growth are, and when you'll need to call in a professional (like SERVPRO) to remediate!

Where is Mold most commonly found?

Mold will grow in places with a lot of moisture, such as around leaks in roofs, windows, or pipes, or where there has been flooding. Mold grows well on paper products, cardboard, ceiling tiles, and wood products. Mold can also grow in dust, paints, wallpaper, insulation, drywall, carpet, fabric, and upholstery.

How can I tell if I need to call in a professional?

If the mold growth covers an area of more than 10 square feet (the size of a bath towel), you should consider calling a mold specialist. Cleaning large areas of mold can be tricky. Mold spores are airborne and very hard to keep contained.
