October is a spooky season. Between the bright colors on the trees and the cool, crisp air, there’s Halloween - a time for ghosts, ghouls, and scary stories. But for many homeowners the scariest thing October brings may just be the one you never see coming, and it might be hiding in your home unseen: mold.
While many of mold’s most conventional hiding spots (bathroom, attic, crawlspace) might not be so hard to guess, the real threat lies in those surprising places where mold can take hold without ever even arousing suspicion. As a result, these surprising hiding spots often end up being some of the most dangerous. But with a little knowledge of where to look and what to look for, you can stop mold from settling in long before the trick-or-treaters come looking for candy.
