Sneaky Mold In Your Silverton, Oregon Home

7/10/2018 (Permalink)

Silverton, Oregon where mold is playing hide and seek in the kitchen

Silverton, Oregon homeowners found mold in their kitchen behind the lower cabinets. Mold damage can range from fungus to mildew. When the atmosphere is right, you can usually find a lot of moisture in your kitchen, hidden. A few examples of how moisture builds include leaky pipes or faucets or steam from boiling water on the store. Moisture and food are great examples of where you can find mold growth in your kitchen.

Especially in the kitchen, the humidity levels increase and that is a strong breeding ground for mold. For example, using a liquid cleanser where the cabinet and stove meet is almost impossible to dry all of the liquid. Sometimes it spills between the two no matter how careful you are.

A way to decrease the levels of humidity especially when cooking over the stove is to turn on the hood vent which has a fan that will pull the steam upward and outside. Another good use in your kitchen is the ceiling fans, if there are any. Air circulation will decrease the probability of mold growth when moisture is present in your kitchen.
