Mold: A Covert Threat Hiding in Plain Sight in Your Home

We often take the safety of our homes for granted. We assume that if we cannot see a threat, it does not exist. While that certainly can be true in some cases, it is not usually the case with mold. Your home may be in need of mold remediation without you even knowing it. 


Mold is one of those nasty things that can hide in plain sight. While you might not be able to see it right away, there are often signs that indicate mold is present. In this guide, we will share some common locations where mold lurks in homes, as well as some signs that you might have hidden mold in plain sight. 


If you do suspect the presence of mold, give us a call right away. 


Invisible Mold Lurking in Your Home


Mold spores are in the air all around us. Those spores are always there. However, just because there are spores present does not mean there is mold growing. There is a difference between these two things. 


The concern is when mold attaches itself to a surface and then begins to reproduce and grow within your home. Since mold spores are microscopic, it can be very difficult to spot mold right away. 


This means that you could have mold growing right in front of you without you knowing it. Being aware of the problem areas in a home can be useful. While some rooms see mold more often than others, there is no space that is exempt from the possibility of mold. That is why also knowing the signs of mold is important. 


These are some of the most common areas of the home that tend to get mold: 


  • Bathroom
  • Kitchen
  • Basement
  • Crawl spaces
  • Attics
  • Laundry rooms
  • Water-damaged areas


It is possible for appliances like your air conditioner, washing machine, refrigerator, and others to potentially host mold as well. Most of the time, mold comes from excessive moisture. Places like your bathroom and kitchen benefit from additional exhaust or ventilation. 


Your bathroom is also a popular culprit, and moisture control goes a long way to help. If you have experienced water damage, you definitely want to check this area for a possible mold problem. 


Signs of Mold Hiding in Plain Sight


There are signs you can look for if you suspect mold in your home. Watch for these signs and take action if any of them seem familiar:


  • Visible mold spots
  • Musty or damp odors
  • Water damage remnants
  • Asthma and allergy systems
  • Warping walls or flooring
  • HVAC odors
  • Tarnish or spots on tiles
