Mold thrives in wet, warm environments and can grow quickly when trapped inside walls. If you notice any mould on your walls, immediately remove it using bleach or a commercial mould mixture. If mould spreads, it can grow on the inside of walls. Once mould enters the interior of a wall or the insulation, seek the help of a professional. Removing pieces of wall can lead to damage to the structure of your home if you are not careful.
