Mold is practically everywhere you go! Depending on your sensitivity to mold allergies, you may not even realize that there’s mold hiding in your home. Luckily, mold remediation is a process that can be completed fairly quickly. Remediation and restoration can even save items covered in mold if caught quickly enough! However, do you know where mold could be hiding in your home? These are a few places you may not realize have been collecting mold:
Antiques: While antiques are a wonderful addition to any home, be sure that the piece has been properly cleaned and restored before being put in the home. Also, if you are storing pieces, ensure that they are properly covered and that the area they are being stored in doesn’t become humid or damp.
Carpets: Can’t get rid of that musky smell? If you didn’t properly dry your carpet after a water leak, then there’s a good chance there’s probably mold underneath it. This is also commonly found in older homes that put carpeting in their basement or in their bathrooms.
Bathrooms: Speaking of bathrooms, this is one place that molds love. Why? It’s humid, wet, and sometimes dark, which molds need to thrive! Regularly clean your bathroom and inspect caulking in shower tiles, tubs, and flooring. Also, check for leaks underneath the sink and properly dry areas out if overly wet.
