Finding mold in your home is not a pleasant sight. Not only is mold extremely unsightly, it can also mean serious problems in your home and potential health problems for you. Federal environmental laws require that mold be professionally removed from a home before the home is sold because of the potential health issues, particularly when you’re dealing with black mold. This means a costly removal process, often going into the thousands, depending on how widespread your mold problem is.

There are a few key elements that mold needs in order to grow. These include: darkness, moisture, food source (like wood or drywall), warm temperatures, and oxygen. That being said, minimizing the chances of mold growth is as simple as limiting its moisture supply.
