Hidden Breeding Grounds Where Mold Maybe Lurking

Mold is the last thing you would want to find in your home. It’s ugly, it can smell, and it can be harmful to your health if left untreated. You may think that your home is mold-free because you can’t see it or you often check your water sources to make sure they don’t leak. However, there are hidden breeding grounds where mold may lurking and you don’t know it. Find out where mold might be hiding in your home!

Hidden Breeding Grounds Where Mold Maybe Lurking


Mold will grow in places that have moisture and in an area where it is dark. Since your kitchen is packed with appliances and plumbing that produce extra moisture, mold can grow easily. When wet dishes pile up into a heap, your dish rack can become a breeding ground for mold growth. While your refrigerator is cold, that does not mean fungus can’t grow inside. Many fridges rely on drip pans to catch any spilled foods and beverages. Your drip pan sits underneath your fridge so it is dark and full of moisture. The perfect place for mold to grow.

Living Room and Bedrooms

You may think that your living room and bedrooms should be the exceptions to mold growth because there isn’t that much moisture in those rooms. You would be wrong. Windows in these rooms create condensation from rain outside which then drips down and pool on your window sills. Have you ever looked at your windowsill and seen it covered in a black or brown color? Well, that might be more than just accumulated dust.

Air Conditioner

Air conditioners generate a lot of excess moisture from the evaporator coils to the drain pan. With your air conditioner running a lot, it creates more and more moisture. If your air conditioner isn’t regularly wiped down and dried off, it will attract mold spores and cause a major mold growth.

Your entire home should be properly ventilated to reduce the amount of moisture, but you should also have regular mold checks. If you suspect that you might have a mold problem, call MicroZyme Technologies today at 866-920-6653.
