Moisture management around the interior and exterior of your property is a large part of being a homeowner. As fungus uses moisture to grow, the main system in your house where it is likely to grow is the drainage system. Therefore it is important to understand it and keep it maintained to reduce the risk of fungus growth. Below are the areas in your property that are most likely to grow fungus.
