There can be a few causes of this mold and it is normally down to dampness from somewhere. If you have had a leaky faucet that you have not fixed and it’s been dripping for sometime then it has probably leaked in to your wall or under the kick board.

Some tips to keep mold out of your home can be as simple as keeping the humidity levels as low as you can. It wants to be well below the 45% mark and if you are running an AC unit or a de-humidify it will help achieve that by taking the moisture out of the air. Make sure you also have adequate ventilation, especially in areas like bathrooms which need extractor fans to pump out the steam and moisture. If you are cleaning your home you can buy from a local home goods store mold cleaners that are great in killing off mold after just a few sprays from a bottle. If you have carpet in a bathroom then you should tear it out because it will get damp and moist over time and trap moisture which will cause mold. Put down an easy to clean floor that will dry quickly.
