Strange localized mold problem
I live on Vancouver island, which is a pretty moist place. Our house is free of mold except for our dining room table. It is about 100 years old, I think made from walnut, and unfinished on the underside. Every couple of years it develops quite extensive bluish mold on the underside. No other piece of furniture gets it.
The house has a slab as the finished floor. the only thing I can think that is unique to the table (beyond its age), is that it sits on a synthetic area rug – the only piece of furniture that does.
Any insights appreciated.
