Mold thrives in moist environments, making the bathroom walls and ceiling a particularly favourable environment for mould to grow in. Mold is unhealthful and left unchecked can spread throughout the home, threatening your family's well-being. Remove mould from bathroom walls and ceilings as soon as you discover it to keep it from seeping behind walls and creating not only an even worse health hazard, but a far more difficult and costly removal problem.
