Mold can be very sneaky. They can thrive in every nook and cranny that is damp, moist or wet. It is typical for mold to show up in basements or behind drywall, but what isn’t is that it also appears in unexpected areas of your house—from the chimney to your washing machine—making it more difficult to detect and wipe out.
Molds growing indoors are never harmless. Not only do they cause structural damages, but they can also cause health issues such as sinusitis, asthma, and allergies to worsen. Black mold is the most infamous species of mold that thrives best after fungal growth on materials that have been damaged by water.
