Mold Facts You Should Know
When water intrudes into your property, mold growth can start in as little as 48 hours. In humid climates, mold can easily take root in areas that have moisture problems. In building with Water Damage, mold will most likely be present unless the area has been promptly dried and ventilated. If the water problem is not treated however, the mold cannot be eradicated. Water Damage is necessary to prevent the allergic reactions, odors, and damage that the spores cause.
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.
