Yes! If the conditions are right mold can grow on any surface.

How to know if you have mold in your home


If mold is present you can smell it, if the smell is worse in a certain room then mold growth is present.

If you only smell mold when you use your HVAC unit then the mold source could be inside of the vents, ducts, or the unit itself.

Mold growth in your home may cause some  issues. 

Places to look in your home for mold

  • Chimneys
  • Basements
  • Attics
  • Bathrooms
  • Dishes
  • Under Carpets
