One of the most common places mold can be found within a home is the bathroom. Mold requires living conditions that are dark, damp, warm, and lack ventilation. These are all attributes of your typical bathroom. As a result, mold thrives and grows quickly.
Where Mold can be Found in a Bathroom
Bathroom mold will grow on just about any surface, including drywall, tile grout, carpet and ceramic (such as toilets and sinks). Drywall is generally the worst offender because it’s porous and therefore easily deteriorate as the mold forms. Mold may also be found within your bathroom fan vent and within ductwork if you have an HVAC unit — so it’s important to check those often-forgotten places.
Our Bathroom Mold Removal Services
Bay State Mold Removal provides residents in the Peabody and surrounding areas with professional mold remediation. Our mold removal process is efficient and effective, focusing on containing the mold problem first. Oftentimes our professionals will notice signs that mold is hidden behind drywall and tile due to water seeping through shower, bath or sink pipes. If this is the case, then we’ll need to remove the drywall to get to the root of the problem. Next we’ll use our HEPA vacuum to safely remove the mold spores and prevent them from spreading out of the bathroom and into other parts of your house.
