Wood-destroying fungi

What can molds mean to the house?

Mold does not break down the woodwork in the home, as, for example, real house fungus does. Mold in the home cannot therefore lead to the building collapsing. But the molds are not completely harmless to your house either. They can e.g. give ugly and smelly discolorations on the walls, which are not easy to remove.

Where in your home do you typically find mould? You typically find the molds in bathrooms that are not ventilated well enough. They often sit in the soft joints in the transition between floor and wall or on walls and ceilings. In damp and poorly insulated homes, molds can grow on walls and ceilings or behind furniture, e.g. behind cupboards and shelves that stand against a cold outer wall. The molds can also be hidden behind wallpaper or inside the wall behind chipboard and similar coverings. Even in new homes there can be mold if moisture is present. In basements and attics, the molds can be found on woodwork and walls where it is damp.

What is the reason that there is mold in the home?

Older, cold homes'

In older homes, there may be mold due to moisture from old water damage. It can, for example, be a leaky roof or water pipe. Cold, poorly insulated houses can also be damp without there being actual water damage. The moisture in the air tends to settle on the cold walls as condensation.
