The basics of Mold

7/10/2018 (Permalink)

When water intrudes into your property, mold growth can start in as little as 48 hours. Consider the following mold facts:

-Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.
-Mold spores are microscopic, float along in the air, and may enter your home through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or a pet.
-Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens and irritants.
-Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise, the mold may return.
-Mold often produces a strong, musty odor, and that odor can lead you to possible mold problem areas.
-Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.
