What causes mold in your home?
Excess moisture caused by leaks or flooding in your home. Damp environments like your kitchen, laundry room and bathrooms creates the perfect breeding ground for mold or mildew. These areas of the home are called “amplification sites.” To control and reduce the risk for mold growth in these areas, you must properly maintain your plumbing system and monitor appliances that use large quantities of water, like dish washers and washing machines. Small amounts of indoor mold are unavoidable and usually harmless. In damp environments, however, mold spores can more easily reproduce.
