Hunting for Mold in the House
You’ve noticed that mildew smell. Mold is a common indoor problem throughout Lafayette, LA. Even though you don’t see any visible mold, you know it’s there. How do you find it? Where is it hiding?
Know Your Prey
Mold is a living thing that needs specific conditions to thrive and multiply. Knowing how molds thrive can help you to track them down and identify the places in your house vulnerable to infestation:
• Damp and humid areas where water settles
• Corners and edges where dust accumulates
• Concealed places where mold rests undisturbed
Many places in your home fit the description. Mold hides between walls, under floors, behind appliances, and under counters. It grows under roofs with leaking shingles and near damaged pipes. Mold also lurks in bathrooms, near air conditioners, and under refrigerators.
