The most common cause of mold growth are leaks. There are many obvious places in your home where leaks can occur; i.e., within the roof, water heater, toilet, washer, faucets, and pipes, etc.
What happens is, a small leak develops and water trickles slowly into your home’s wall cavities causing stains to appear in your ceiling and inner walls. This is a very common sign of mold growth. This can affect your health and should be addressed as promptly as possible.
