Even though mold is common and can be found everywhere, both indoors and out, this doesn’t minimize its destruction when found inside the home.
Mold is typically the result of a larger issue, namely a water sourced one, like a leak in a pipe or roof. In addition to a water source, it needs humidity in order to thrive.
Most times, mold can grow unnoticed for a period of time as pipes are within walls and leaks from a roof can take some time to penetrate down to the living areas of the home.
Once the visible and olfactory effects begin to surface, mold has had some time to spread and a residential mold remediation plan will certainly need to be put into place.
