If you have treated a mold spot somewhere in your home only to have it return days or weeks later, this is because you kill the mold, but do not eliminate the reason it started to grow in the first place. Mold will always return to a place where there is adequate moisture, warmth, and food for it to sustain life. You must remove the things that are allowing it to begin growing all over again.
Mold usually occurs in kitchens, bathrooms, and crawlspaces because of moisture. All of these rooms can become warm as well while the moisture is being put in the air. Combine the moisture and warmth with a porous surface with food value and there you have it. Let this combination linger a few day and you get mold. The source of the problem must be found to stop the occurrence
In some cases, indoor mold growth may not be obvious. It is possible that mold may be growing on hidden surfaces, such as the back side of dry wall, wallpaper, or paneling, the top of ceiling tiles, the underside of carpets and pads, etc. Possible locations of hidden mold can include pipe chases and utility tunnels (with leaking or condensing pipes), walls behind furniture (where condensation forms), condensate drain pans inside air handling units, porous thermal or acoustic liners inside ductwork, or roof materials above ceiling tiles (due to roof leaks or insufficient insulation).
