Frost pulled through outside walls can cause mold

Indoor moisture and mold can cause problems in any home and it’s important to identify potential for future mold problems and causes of mold before they develop.

Frost can Cause Mold in the Home

One major cause of mold in the home throughout winter is frost being pulled through outside walls. In winter the combination of high moisture levels and humidity within your home often results in condensation on windows and the colder walls of the home, such as exterior walls. Condensation even forms on concrete flooring and under carpets. Very often mold growth is a result of this moisture in the home.
