Where Can You Find Kitchen Mold?
Mold is found in both the interior and exterior of your home. Mold spores thrive on moisture, dark places, and oxygen supply. Mold thrives in temperatures between 72 to 82 degrees. There is no specific amount water or humidity that mold needs to survive. If it is a little damp or very humid mold can grow.
Many times mold will begin to grow in places that you cannot see. It can grow inside walls due to water lines and other plumbing pipes that have been cracked or separated. Condensation on plumbing lines and a high humidity environment can lead to the growth of mold.
Commonly mold is found in kitchens. Some of the primary sources of water can be:
- Dishwasher leaks
- Sink supply and drain lines
- Washing Machine supply and drain lines
- Condensation on pipes underneath the sink
- Counter-tops and back-splashes that are not installed
- Wet Cabinets
- Any spills that are not properly cleaned up
