The Dangers of Household Mold

Finding mold in your home can be unsettling. Even if you’re doing everything right and keeping your home clean, it can still find its way in through cracks and crevices. Installing an exhaust hood in your home creates a watertight seal, and prevents your home from becoming stagnant – an environment where mold thrives. In addition to installing Kozy Kollar, take a peek at this list to see where else mold likes to hide.


Mold in your kitchen comes from many sources. Leaky refrigerators and drippy faucets can cause mold problems that you can see and clean up. But what about where you can’t see? Drippy pipes under the sink can create problems, as can mold in the vent hood. Remedy these problems by taking apart the fan regularly and cleaning it.


The bathroom is without a doubt, the wettest part of your home. Think about it. You have the sink, the tub, the shower, the toilet. All these places can become leaky, moldy disasters if you’re not careful. Also, hot showers create steam which can also create mold if the room isn’t ventilated properly. You can prevent bathroom mold growth by making sure none of your faucets are leaking, and closing the shower curtain so it can dry out completely.


The attic is likely the last place you think of when it comes to a potential mold problem. But what’s the first part of your home to get wet when it rains? Try installing one of our Kozy Kollar products to make sure your roof flashing and hood vents are watertight!
