There is a large spot of
black mold that was found underneath the plastic bath tub surround.
Bathtub surrounds that aren't sealed properly, can allow moisture to
enter behind them. This of course over time can attract, ants, termites
and of course mold.
I often get asked the questions, "How Can We Prevent This?" Proper
installation and maintenance can prevent mold from growing behind your
walls or bathtub surrounds.
When working on someone's home, I often find mold and wood rot behind,
toilets, sinks, bathtubs and showers. Anyplace where moisture can
accumulate, mold and wood rot can be found.
