Most homeowners are unaware that mold could be growing in their dishwasher. Dishwashers have two connections that have potential to grow mold and mildew: the water supply and the discharge connection. If your dishwashers older, consider checking its connection for mold. This is also something to keep in mind if you are purchasing an older home with outdated appliances.


Very often the water line connection in your refrigerator's icemaker becomes weak or breaks causing leaks behind the refrigerator which eventually leads to mold. 

Bath Tub

If a bathtub isn’t properly caulked, water and moisture will drip down under the tub and can cause mold issues.  This is yet another hidden spot where hazardous mold can unexpectedly grow in your home.
