Where Does Mold Hide?

Where does mold like to hide in Kansas and Missouri and how can it be prevented? SMART Environmental Services in Kansas City is your local mold remediation expert and can help rid your home or business of the unwanted fungus. 

Mold can grow in any place inside a home or business that has experienced a leak, or where condensation or high humidity occurs. Mold likes warm, dark and damp spots such as basements, bathrooms, kitchens, attics, underneath flooring or sinks, around pipes and inside ductwork. 

Mold is extremely common, even inside the cleanest, most air-tight home. In fact, fungal spores are a normal part of the environment. Their purpose in nature is to help decompose organic matter. But when it begins growing in an environment where it doesn’t belong, it can become a huge problem.  Because mold digests the materials it grows on, untreated it can cause permanent damage to structures, furnishings, clothing and other items. If you need mold removal in Kansas City or the surrounding areas, SMART Environmental Services offers services to return your home or business to a clean and sanitary condition.

Most people associate a musty smell with a basement or crawl space, but that odor may be a good indication that mold is growing. Leaky pipes on appliances or inside walls can all cause a problem. If you see stains on your ceiling or drywall, that means moisture penetrated that space and mold could be growing out of sight.
