Mold growth is an extremely common problem that the majority of homeowners do have to face at some point. Keeping ahead of the issue and performing routine home mold inspections is the best way to catch the problem early and avoid subsequent damage. Make sure you’re checking the following hidden places next time you perform a mold inspection for your home.


  1. Window Sills

    It’s likely to find mold on wood, including your wooden window sills. This is especially likely after it rains, or if you keep your indoor humidity levels too high. Any time     you see condensation forming on your windows, make sure to double check for mold.

  1. Walls and Wallpaper

    Mold that grows in these areas is sneaky. You’re likely only to find moldy drywall if you’re removing your wallpaper. Obviously, you want to avoid doing that every time     you conduct a mold inspection. Check for areas where the wallpaper is peeling, especially if the paper is older.

  1. House Plants

    Over watering your houseplants is a great way to unintentionally invite mold into your home. The standing water and organic matter create the perfect fungal     breeding ground. Avoid mold growth by only watering your plants at the roots and portioning out an appropriate amount of liquid.

  1. Refrigerator

    Have you ever bought fresh produce, only to forget about it and find it rotting in your refrigerator drawer a week or so later? You need to make sure you’re regularly. Checking and cleaning old food out of your refrigerator during every mold inspection.

  1. Washing Machines

    It’s natural to assume that a washing machine would be self cleaning, but that’s not necessarily the case. Neglecting to air out the drum can cause an excess of     moisture that attracts mold.


It’s possible for mold growth to occur anywhere that excessive moisture is found. Avoid unwanted mold by remembering to keep your home as clean and dry as possible. Contact mold remediation experts for assistance if you do happen to discover any mold during a routine inspection.
