Leaky Faucet Can Cause Mold!

Doing the dishes and cleaning your sinks are unpleasant enough, but add the smell of mold and it’s just unbearable. Not only does this moldy smell dissuade you from going anywhere near your drains, but the odor can also spread through the house. 

The moldy smell in your drains comes from….you guessed it – mold! Mold and mildew form easily in damp, dark environments. That is why drainpipes are ideal places for the fungus to grow. Kitchen and bathroom sinks in particular have mold growth because of the food particles and hair particles that pass. The mold feeds off the debris. The fungus and mildew are not only unpleasant to your nose, the spores can cause eye / skin irritation and respiratory problems.
