Bathroom fans that are not properly used or are not functioning correctly are often the cause of mold growth in many areas in bathrooms. Significant amounts of hidden mold can also be discovered in kitchens.
Improper use of kitchen exhaust vents and bathroom fans are not the only causes for mold growth in these rooms. Plumbing fixtures in kitchens and bathrooms can develop small leaks that homeowners don’t know about until after they have significant mold problems. Kitchens have ample food items and residue that can support the growth of mold. Bathrooms have significant amounts of bio-matter in them that can also provide food for mold.
This book, Kitchens & Bathrooms, is part four of the book series Do-It-Yourself Mold Inspection and it promises to be an eye-opener for you. You simply won’t find a better set of instructions for locating and dealing with mold contamination in homes.
The investigation photos included in this book will show you all the places where hidden mold grows in kitchens and bathrooms. It will also help you understand all the additional causes beyond kitchen vents and bathroom fans. Having this knowledge can protect you and help prevent the mold from returning.
Each of the books in the Do-It-Yourself Mold Inspection series should only be read after reading Part One: Know Your Enemy and Part Two: Hidden Moisture Sources. Those two books are critical to understanding each of the mold inspection books that cover specific areas around homes.
