Mold and Vinyl Floors

Posted by Michael Ricker on November 28th, 2000 10:18 AM


Wondering if anyone has any info on this. I own a house
that is just over 1 year old. I noticed mold growing on
the baseboards in 2 different places where I have vinyl
flooring. I cleaned the areas and it grew back with no
visible source of moisture. The house is very clean so it
is not a simple cleaning issue. I pointed this out during
my 1 year walk through. The builder removed the baseboard
and made sure there were no issues withing the walls. The
problem areas are not close to plumbing. Then I noticed
some purple spots appearing in various areas of the floor.
They do not clean off. A cousin of mine looked at them
and though they had seen a show about mold under vinyl
flooring that is direct on concrete. The builder followed
up but claimed they never heard of such a thing. I figured
someone on the Net must know.
