What Causes Mold In Homes & Businesses?
Mold development is caused by unwanted moisture buildup. When spores are exposed to moisture, the spores will germinate, root into your porous building materials, and spread into a major contamination. Once exposed to a water source, it only takes 24-48 hours for mold to develop. So when faced with a mold problem, we need to actively remove the mold AND properly address the water source to prevent regrowth.
Regardless if it is black mold, white mold or toxic mold — excessive mold growth should not be indoors. Because of the natural air exchange with the outdoor environment (through windows, doors, vents and other openings), some mold spores will always exist indoors. However, when mold begins to develop in excess on building materials, contents or personal belongings — we have a problem.
Dealing With A Mold Problem
Mold requires special handling and removal. Mishandling or mistreatment of mold can make the situation worse by allowing for cross-contamination to clean areas, causing more property damage, and leading to more costly repairs to correct the situation. Mold remediation should be completed by a trained professional with the right equipment, PPE, and cleaning products. When dealing with a mold problem it is important to identify the source, contain the problem, and effectively remove the mold.
Once the mold has been addressed, the moisture source is next. In order to prevent regrowth, the water issues must be repaired. Effective moisture control is the key to mold prevention and maintaining mold-free property.
