Common Areas for Mold Growth

attic mold


Most of the time when we encounter attic mold, the cause is related to moisture intrusion and poor ventilation. Stale air won’t dry out moisture very well and will make your attic ideal for mold formation. You should do a quick inspection at least once a year for mold, roof leaks or stuffy air that could make your attic a breeding ground for mold.

flooded basement cleanup


Wet basements are pretty typical around Buffalo and they are perhaps the most notorious culprit for household mold formation. It occurs most commonly in unfinished basements where humidity isn’t well regulated. When your basement mold begins to spread, you’ll start to notice a musty smell. It’s important to get your basement checked out immediately because if left unchecked, mold can spread rapidly and cause in serious health issues.

Kitchen Cabinets

Kitchens are another popular spot for mold due to the above average moisture levels. In particular, areas without much air flow to evaporate standing moisture are a mold’s favorite place to live. This means you should pay a little extra attention to the areas behind your appliances and kitchen cabinets. And of course, you don’t need to be a mold remediation expert to know about the mold potential under the sink; so make sure you take care of any leaky pipes right away.

Signs You Should Test for Mold

The majority of mold formation in your home is likely to occur somewhere out of sight. This means mold can grow unchecked for months or years before you’re ever aware of it. Thankfully, there are some indicators to help you determine if you should call  your mold remediation experts in WNY for a quick inspection. Some of the most common signals include: moisture that won’t dry out (in your carpets for example), a sour odor gaining potency, or a family member showing uncommon allergic symptoms.
