Understanding Mold

As water intrudes your property, the growth of mold may begin within 2 days. Consider these facts about mold:

• Mold exists almost every place, outside and in.
• Spores of mold are microscopic, float inside air, and might enter your house through heating/AC systems, doors, windows or even catch a ride inside on your clothes or even your pet.
• Mold spores will thrive on moisture. The spores of mold quickly can grow into colonies as exposed to water. The colonies might generate irritants, as well as allergens.
• Prior to the mold remediation starting, any water or moisture sources have to be addressed. The mold might return, otherwise
• Mold oftentimes generates a musty, strong smell, and that smell might lead to potential mold problem spaces.
• Even higher-than-usual humidity indoors might support the growth of mold. Keep humidity indoors below 45%.
