No one wants to find mold growing in their home. However, if you discover any type of mold in your house, it's not the end of the world, there are things that can be done to either reduce, or remove it completely, and give you back your peace of mind. You may be wondering, 'If I do nothing will the mold go away on its own?' Consider how mold behaves and how to get rid of it.

Common Causes

Mold can be found in many places around your home; walls, cabinets, bathrooms, even your carpet! Mold will normally only thrive in dark and moist environments. Some of the common causes include but are not limited to:

  • Plumbing Leaks
  • Roof Leaks
  • Condensation
  • Humidity
  • Flooding
  • Spills
  • Etc.


While there are many DIY solutions to dealing with mold, most commonly using bleach, those aren't usually effective. This is especially true on porous surfaces, where mold is typically found, as it spreads deep into the material where the cleaning solution cant reach. However, your safest bet is to call a professional who is certified and experienced in mold cleanup.


If you do nothing but remove the factors that encourage mold growth, such as moisture and humidity, you should be able to slow and stop its growth. However, this won’t remove the mold. The spores will still be there, and as soon as moisture is reintroduced they will come back at full strength.


The best way to ensure mold is fully gone is to call a mold remediation specialist.
