Black Mold Removal Around Vents On Vinyl Siding
Siding is your home’s first line of defense against the elements. Naturally, the elements take a toll. Unfortunately, black mold on vinyl siding around attic, bathroom, dryer, and oven vents is a common issue. If you notice mold on the outside of your house, take steps to remove it immediately.
What is Black Mold on my Vinyl Siding?
Mold looks fuzzy or slimy and comes in many colors, from dark green to bright red to black. It can cause structural damage if left to grow unchecked. Mold is also known to cause health issues, including allergic reactions and respiratory issues. Mold is easy to identify when you see it, but it can grow unseen for a while. If you smell something musty or foul in an area prone to moisture, do a thorough visual inspection of the space for signs of mold growth.
Conditions for Mold and Mildew Growth
Moisture and lack of light are the keys to mold and mildew growth on your vinyl siding. You probably wouldn’t be surprised to see mold or mildew in a crawl space, basement, or poorly ventilated bathroom, but your homes exterior can also be a prime location for mildew and mold to grow.
Think about it this way: What do damp crawl spaces, basements, and bathrooms have in common with the side of your house that doesnt receive direct sunlight?

⦁ Lack of Light

Mold on vinyl siding is most common on the shady side of your house. Since it receives very little direct sunlight, the moisture doesn’t have a chance to evaporate. This creates the perfect habitat for mold and mildew spores.
