Moisture and air is all that molds require for growing and breeding. Most of the dampness is caused by a faulty plumbing system. Water that leaks out of the plumbing pipes will seep inside your house and wet the nearby areas. If there is any wood material then it will be soaked which eventually turns out to be a good breeding ground for the mold. The molds once it grows and multiplies it will lead to health problems such as asthma, skin allergy, headaches etc. Small children and old people are the worst affected ones. It can even lead to serious health problems among the elderly. To keep your home safe from molds you need to get a professional to check your plumbing system once in a while. The areas where you need to check for molds are under the kitchen and bathroom sink because these areas are damp most of the time hence facilitate the growth of molds.
Slow dripping sinks and leaks near the pipes need to be repaired by a professional. Humid and moist areas will also lead to dust mites. They get into your body when you breathe and may cause allergy which can turn fatal for children and elderly. If you can find these molds and dust mites in your home merely cleaning it won’t eliminate the problem forever. You need to fix all the leaks so as to get rid of the moisture. Only then you will be able to make your home environment safe for you and your family.
