Got Mold? 3 Most Common Places To Find Mold In Your Home

Dr. Jill Crista describes the 3 most common places to find hidden mold in your home.

I want to talk about the three most common places to find mold in your house. 

#1 Finished basements. The Bain of my existence. In another vlog I’m going to talk about materials if you are going to finish a basement that you need to use to keep you and your family safe. 

#2 Refrigerators. Behind your refrigerator, under a refrigerator and most commonly is if you have water coming to your refrigerator for an automatic ice maker or a water dispenser. Those can have slow, quiet leaks and then you end up with water in your basement and it was the refrigerator that was the problem. 

#3 Pets. Believe it or not, pet pee is a very common problem for mold growth. They have a favorite spot. They go over and over and you miss it because they usually pick the most hidden place in your house. Behind a couch. Behind a chair. Under a table and you don’t even know it.
