Is There Mold Hiding in your Galesburg, MI Home?

10/18/2018 (Permalink)

Mold was found after removing the cupboards off the wall. Remember a strong, musty odor may indicate hidden mold in your Galesburg home.

When there is water there’s a way… meaning when you add just a little bit of moisture mold spores can form and grow.  Here are a few tricky places people don’t typically think of when checking for mold.

    • Chimneys have the ability to grow mold because the crevices of the brick collect water and other dirt particles. 
    • Refrigerator drip pans are constantly collecting moisture and food spills from the refrigerator making it a great environment for mold growth. 
    • Front loading washing machines are a susceptible place for mold growth because the door usually gets wet quite often. The door never gets a chance to dry out because it usually gets closed when not in use creating a great moist environment for mold to grow. 
    • Air conditioners that sit for a while without being used have a good chance of mold growth. Air conditioners tend to draw in dust particles from the outside. The dust particles mixed with the condensation makes a perfect environment for mold spores to start.

If you find mold in any of these places, don’t worry, we are here to help! SERVPRO of East Kalamazoo has the training, equipment, and expertise to handle your mold problem. Call us Today at (269) 342-2366
