Mold likes warm and dark places to grow and flourish, which often means you may have mold in your home and be totally unaware of it. If you have had any kind of water leak in your home or places where moisture can get in (like around windows and doors) you need to dig deep to be sure you home is mold free.

A leaky pipe can cause mold to grow in sneaky places. Even after the obvious water has been cleaned up, water may have flowed into unseen places. Be sure to investigate fully in the following places;Inside or behind cabinets, beneath or behind drywall, behind floor baseboards, beneath bathroom and kitchen sinks, behind wallpaper, in or behind particle board material. Windows and doors are places for moisture to enter the home. Not only can storm-driven water leak in through the cracks, but the temperature difference between a warm home and cold outdoors causes moisture to condense on the windows and doors and drip down on lintels and frames. It can also weep into wall cavities and underneath flooring, as well as hide in fiberglass insulation.

In addition, other places in your home may provide the perfect environment for mold to grow, so be sure to check in:

  • the basement or crawl space
  • rooms with high relative humidity (like bathrooms and kitchens)
  • ductwork and HVAC systems
  • swamp coolers, in refrigerators
  • plant pots
  • shower curtains

Recently a friend borrowed a dressy cotton tee shirt for a recruiting event she attended in search of employment. I am somewhat embarrassed to share with you that when she returned the shirt to me, it reeked of the most offensive worst body odor I have ever smelled in my life! I washed the shirt several times and even soaked it overnight in white vinegar (a ‘treatment” alleged to remove body odor from fabrics), to no avail – I could smell the odor through the vinegar.  No matter how hard I tried to rid the shirt of her perspiration odor, it would not go away….until, in a last ditch effort to return my favorite tee to my wardrobe, I tried Devour Plus. I wet the shirt and saturated Devour Plus everywhere under the arm pit area of the shirt. To my unexpected surprise, after laundering the shirt the next day to remove the product, it now smells fresh, as well as TOTALLY and COMPLETELY rid of her perspiration odor! This result was so amazing that you may want to share this information with others. I have never experienced any product accomplish what Devour Plus did in the laundry product arena. Thank you for restoring my favorite tee shirt to my wardrobe! I truly thought it was a “gone-er.”
