How Mold Damage Begins
Mold growth in the home occurs when mold spores meet humidity for the most part. Living in high humidity areas can be a recipe for constant issues with mold. When not given attention within 48-72 hours mold can easily start growing in dark, humid, moist climates. If mold formations go unnoticed for long periods of time, structural and health problems may begin to occur.
Mold spores are everywhere. Even when it is not an issue, mold is in the air at all times. Mold feeds off of wood, cotton, drywall, etc. and will not be found in areas where sunlight beams through in the home. Mold growth thrives on moisture, oxygen, and a tad bit of warmth. There may be multiple areas in your home that include some of these concepts. But, as soon as moisture is added to this mix, it’s a recipe for disaster. At this point you can almost guarantee mold growth.
Leaking pipes, cracks in foundations, and flooding are all common forms of water damage in the home. All of these can form moisture or dampness that will potentially result in mold growth. Ventilation is always going to be your #1 in prevention of this. As ventilation keeps the areas dried out and constantly have a nice air flow going through the home.
