Mold spores occur organically everywhere but you don't want them growing inside your walls, get that leak fixed asap!

Every time you walk in your kitchen, you get a whiff of that telltale musty, damp, organic smell of mold but you just can’t seem to find where it’s coming from. Perhaps that pipe under the sink has a slow leak, maybe the refrigerator water line is dripping inside the wall. There could even be a leak from a bathroom above the kitchen, but where do you begin?

First things first, mold needs water to start forming, so every attempt should be made to find the source of the leak or where the water could be coming from. Contact a plumbing professional or other service pro as soon as possible to take remedy the issue as soon as you can.  Additionally, and equally as important, give your homeowner’s insurance agent or company a call to see what your policy might cover for the repair and remediations.

**Be very clear on what your policy will and will not cover. There are all kinds of terms and restrictions and everyone’s situation is different. Ask your agent specifically about your issue. The more info you have, the more you’re prepared for the next steps.

Mold growth in a home always starts with a water issue like an unknown or hidden leak, a burst pipe, ice damming, roofing or gutter failures, sump pumps, toilet or fridge water lines, etc. If you don’t have a professional take care of the source of leak, the mold will continue to thrive and create a more aggressive situation that is harder to treat and could be costly.
