We should all add "inspect for mold" to our checklist to ensure a clean and safe home. This is the one area you should add to the top of your inspection list.
Spring is officially here, and for many, that means it's time to don our gloves and grab the cleaning supplies. Spring cleaning shouldn't just involve scrubbing every nook and cranny, though. To ensure a clean and safe home, we should also add "look for mold" to our seasonal checklist. As for the one place you should always inspect first, it's got to be the bathroom.
Why the bathroom?
Mold spores need two main components for growth: food and moisture. When it comes to our bathrooms, both of these can be in abundance if we don't take steps to remove them. These rooms can have plenty of food options for mold in the form of dust, skin cells, and other organic particles. As for moisture, between the shower, tub, sink, and toilet, water abounds in bathrooms too.
