Mold loves to live in damp places and it is often times found inside walls due to a leak in plumbing or a leaking roof and on your ceiling from the same sources but it can also be caused by excess moisture in your home from the bathroom and or kitchen where there can be a lot of condensation. Mold is sneaky and before long, if not controlled, can become a nightmare.
The most visible type of mold is mildew. Mildew starts out as tiny small black spots and if not treated quickly can grow into large colonies. Mildew is often found on grout in the shower, on outdoor decking, siding and in any damp shady area.
The best way to treat and remove areas of mold and mildew is by using a mixture of 1 cup bleach to 8 cups water solution and thoroughly scrubbing the affected areas. Always take precautions when cleaning and we highly suggest using gloves, goggles and a respirator so that you don’t inhale any of the spores.
If you suspect you have a heavier mold infestation, like in the walls or in your frame of the house, attic, basement, the best suggestion is to contact a remediation company as they are heavily equipped to handle larger issues.
Once you have cleaned up the mold/mildew the key is to stop it from continuing to grow. Stop all leaks, ensure that your house and bathroom have adequate ventilation and keep areas like your attic and crawlspaces dry.
