Indoor Mold Growth

Mold Growth

When mold growth occurs indoors, it should be cause for concern. Growth from elevated moisture levels occurs in as little as 48 to 72 hours. While mold occurs naturally and is an important part of nature, indoor mold growth can affect your health, damage your property, and is often a sign of other problems.

Mold growth may not always be visible or evident. Mold spores are present in the air and enter our homes from outside. in most cases, these mold spores do not cause any problems until they locate a source for food and water.

Most common sources of mold growth:

  • A slowly leaking roof can cause mold to grow in the attic.
  • Water leaking around a bathtub
  • Water leaking around appliance
  • Unchecked moisture in a basement
  • Condensation on a wall behind a piece of furniture
  • Condensation on windows, walls, or exposed surfaces
  • Humidity
  • Water leaks (under sinks, or cabinets)
  • Insufficient ventilation

These sources can quickly result in the mold infestation of homes too quickly grow. Hiring a professional mold removal company is critical in the remediation process.
