Common Areas to Remove Mold in Your Home


Having a badly insulated attic is one of the reasons mold can appear. If your attic is poorly insulated, temperature volatility makes moisture advance throughout the space over time. Any mold remediation professional will say this type of insulation feeds mold and promotes growth due to continuous moisture exposure. Here are some other problems we’ve encountered:

  • Insufficient insulation or the insulation is being configured incorrectly.
  • Not enough ventilation or insulation is being hindered;
  • Vents from a bathroom or kitchen that reach the attic;
  • Clutter impedes airflow along with boxes that act as a sponge to moisture.

Basements & Crawlspaces

Lower levels such as basements and crawl spaces are prime for molded areas and if left unchecked often need mold damage restoration. Having a decent humidifier all year long is imperative to controlling moisture in your basement. With moisture control, you should constantly check places where water is present and mold can enter the home resulting in an unforeseen expense for mold restoration. Things to look for when doing an assessment:

  • High humidity 
  • Eliminating clutter caused by boxes that absorb moisture 
  • Sump pumps that are not in use and/or unsealed 
  • Cracks in walls and in the floor that can leak during storms

Living Spaces

Laundry rooms are one of the leading places that favor mold growth as well as bedrooms, living rooms, and kitchens. These are the first places a mold specialist will do a mold inspection. Watch for issues such as:

  • Leakage near windows and doors due to wood rot, caulking cracks, and faulty installations
  • High humidity rooms like laundry rooms and bathrooms that aren’t ventilated properly.
  • Leaks from refrigerator ice maker lines, dishwasher and washing machine connections
  • Lack of exhaust ventilation in areas of high humidity such as kitchens and bathrooms


The exterior of your home is often overlooked but this is something you should analyze a few times every year. To prevent the need for mold damage repair Chicago look for water damage and other flaws from the places on the following list to mitigate mold issues fast:

  • Leaky roofs and flash issues
  • Gutters that are clogged and downspouts that don’t push water away from the structure
  • Pipes that go through the exterior surface and gaps near electrical fixtures

Harry G.

We had water and fire damage. Vanguard cleaned all the walls and repainted. Remodeled the kitchen by removing and replacing cabinets too. They did a great job and our room looks so nice.

I was able to get a mold inspection at my house within a few days and got the report already. The inspector was very professional, answered all my questions, and really put me at ease.
