Searching for Molds Indoors

Mold is very helpful outdoors as it helps in breaking down fallen leaves and dead trees. However, you wouldn’t really want to have them inside your homes and office buildings, as they can be pretty harmful to human and animal health. And yes, mold can definitely grow indoors, provided the conditions are ideal. 

So where can you normally find mold indoors? Below are three of the most common locations where mold can usually be found.

1. Bathroom
The bathroom or shower obviously has plenty of water and moisture, and it may never really go back to normal humidity levels once you actually start using it. Most bathrooms also don’t have ample ventilation, which means that the humidity that increases when water from the shower floor and walls dries up tends to linger in the bathroom longer. All of these provide a perfect environment for mold to grow.

2. Kitchen
Molds in the kitchen can usually be found near the dishwasher, under the sink, or behind the refrigerator - spaces where small leaks often go unnoticed for a longer period of time. If you start to notice a musty odor in the kitchen, you’ll want to search for mold growth, especially in the areas aforementioned.

3. Basement 
Basements in older homes tend to have mold growth due to the moisture that develops in them. Basement molds can also be found in homes that are poorly sloped, have broken drain tiles and foundation cracks, or are missing waterproof membranes as these conditions add to the moisture in the home.

Preventing mold spores from getting indoors can be a pretty impossible task. The important thing is to control its growth inside the home, and this can be done by knowing where it can be found, and keeping the moisture down. Regularly cleaning and replacing of filters (you can find a wide range of filter sizes by FilterBuy) can help ensure cleaner indoor air all around.
