Mold? But I didn't see anything, how did that happen ?

Mold Remediation Mold? But I didn't see anything, how did that happen ? A Drain line coming from the upstairs developed a leak, behind the cabinets where the homeowner cant see it. The cabinets hide the real damage

Mold is one of those things, Its all around us looking for a nice place to settle down and grow.  Our houses are warm and made from wood and paper, all the things that mold spores are seeking.  Introduce some water and we have the third element which now leads to growth. 

Kitchens are notorious for leaks and things that happen involving water.  The cabinets keep these things hidden.  When was the last time you moved all those bags and cleaners and other stuff that lies under your Kitchen sink to look for leaks and / or mold growth ?  We don't, and by the time we find it, its too late. 

This is a case of a leak in the drain coming from the upstairs behind the dishwasher.  Never was this noticed until water became visible, which by then, was too late.  When we removed the Kitchen Cabinets, you can see how the mold spread to the left and right sides behind the cabinets.  None of this was able to be seen otherwise.  Scary Stuff.
