What Are Some Common Causes of Mold Odors and Growth?

mold odor

Homeowners don’t like hearing that they have mold inside their house. It isn’t something anyone has the desire to consider. Mold growth frequently leads to bad smells. Unfortunately, mold may be difficult to find, identify, and treat because it usually lurks in spaces that are not easily visible. Some areas that mold may grow involve:

  • Exterior. Roofing problems, incorrect grading, improper caulking, clogged gutters, and much more lead to the build-up of mold on the exterior of a home.
  • Living Spaces. Leaking windows, appliances leaking, cracks in caulking, plumbing leaks, and much more all can lead to mold throughout the house.
  • Crawlspaces. Ventilated areas and lack of a vapor barrier, in conjunction with clutter and humidity, may lead to mold in the crawlspace.
  • Basements. Clutter, high humidity, cracks in the floor or wall, and unsealed sump pumps may place you at risk for mold inside your basement.
  • Inside the Attic. A leaking roof, improperly installed or insufficient insulation, improper venting, lack of ventilation, as well as lack of air flow all can be causes of mold inside an attic.
