Mold Growing in Unexpected Places in Springfield Homes?

5/7/2024 (Permalink)

A carpet is pulled back to reveal a mold outbreak on the floor. We restore mold damage quickly and efficiently in Lane County.

Our local Springfield and East Lane County teams are leaders in mold damage remediation services, and share the following unusual places where mold can thrive:

HVAC Systems: Mold can spread through heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems, particularly if moisture builds up in ducts or filters.

Clothes and Shoes: Mold can grow on clothes and shoes if damp for extended periods, especially in dark closets.

Toys and Stuffed Animals: Children's toys and stuffed animals can harbor mold if not properly cleaned and dried.

Books and Paper Documents: Mold can grow on books and paper documents if stored in damp or humid environments, such as basements or poorly ventilated areas.

Chimneys and Fireplaces: Mold can develop in chimneys and fireplaces due to moisture buildup from rain or condensation, particularly in unused or poorly maintained ones.

Underneath Carpets and Rugs: Mold can grow underneath carpets and rugs if there's moisture present, such as from spills or leaks that seep into the subfloor.

Mattresses and Pillows: Mold can develop on mattresses and pillows if they're exposed to moisture from sweat or spills and not adequately dried.

Appliances: Mold can grow in appliances like refrigerators, dishwashers, and washing machines if there's moisture buildup or leaks in their seals or hoses.
