Understanding Mold

When water invades your property, mold growth can start in as little as 48 hours. Below are facts about mold. 

  • Mold is present everywhere, indoors and outdoors. 
  • Mold spores are microscopic, float along in the air, and may enter your home through windows, doors, or A/C heating systems. Mold can also enter your home by attaching itself to your clothing or a pet. 
  • Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies and can produce allergens and irritants. 
  • Any sources of water or moisture must be addressed before we can begin the remediation process. Otherwise, the mold can return. 
  • Mold can often produce a strong, musty odor, and that odor can lead you to the problem areas. 
  • Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent. Higher than normal indoor humidity can support mold growth.
