Why windows are prone to mold?
Windows are constantly exposed to harsh outdoor weather conditions, making them vulnerable to leaks. Water accumulates when window frames leak, often leading to mold on or around the frames, window sills and walls.
This is an especially common problem in older homes where the seals around the windows have weakened and allow water and condensation to gather.
In addition, window mold results when there is a difference in temperature between the inside and outside of a house. This temperature difference can cause condensation, moisture build-up and mold. The base of the window is usually where moisture and dust build up to create the perfect environment for mold growth.
Due to the high cellulose content of drywall, window mold often destroys walls that are located adjacent to windows. Depending on the extent of the mold contamination, some window frames and window sills may have to be replaced.
That’s why, before Mold Busters starts any remediation work, we will inspect the area around your windows to identify signs of moisture intrusion and to evaluate the extent of the damage. Call us today to learn more about our window mold removal services.

Is mold on windows dangerous?
Mold, in general, can be dangerous depending on its species, extent of its propagation, and its exposure to individuals with compromised immune systems, for example. Mold growing on windows is typically surface-oriented and is often growing on the dust which accumulates on the windows themselves. This type of window mold issue can be easily resolved through regular cleaning.
However, if mold is growing along with the window framing, or has moisture-related issues, a bigger problem may be present that requires a professional approach. Contacting your local mold inspector would be a logical first step in determining how dangerous your window mold issue can be.
How to remove window mold?
Because the spaces between windows and window frames are so tiny, window mold removal can be a tedious and time-consuming job.
If you are considering removing window mold on your own, you should first know that most household products simply are not strong enough to eliminate certain types of mold. This is because mold is known to deeply root itself into host areas, making it impossible to expel completely.
Professional window mold removal will not only save you time, but it will also minimize damage to surrounding window frames and adjacent walls.
