Top 10 Places Mold Will Most Likely Grow In Your Home

Mold that can be easily viewed is much easier to detect but concealed mold can be a homeowner’s worst nightmare. Here is a list of the top ten most likely places mold will grow in your home.

1. Around windows
Often moisture condenses around windows due to the temperature difference inside verses outside. This moisture can be a breeding ground for mold.

2. Leaking or condensing pipes
Faulty plumbing and condensation from pipes are one of the biggest causes of mold growth in residential and commerical properties.

Follow these 3 crucial steps to protect yourself from getting financially burned after a house fire.

1. Except for emergency work, do not sign any contracts for repairs in the first 48 hours.

Afterall, you could end up owing up to 20% of the total amount of your claim for canceling what you have signed. If your loss is worth $200,000.00 then that is a $40,000.00 cancellation fee.

Experiencing water damage in your Tampa home can be unnerving. A broken sewage pipe especially so.

And if this wasn’t bad enough, the pipe was for the sewage outflow.  The leak allowed sewage water to enter their kitchen and contaminated water seeped under the kitchen cabinets and traveled toward the living room wall dividing the kitchen. Contaminated water caused the baseboard in the living room to separate from the plaster. The water was foul and the damage was getting worse.
