Mold Spores In Your Home
If you see visible mold, do not disturb it. You can inadvertently spread the mold infestation throughout your home. Whether it's the slimy black spots on your shower curtain, the fuzzy white patches on your basement floor, household mold is more than unsightly. When mold is disturbed, the mold can release microscopic mold spores which become airborne and can circulate inside your home.
If the right conditions exist, mold will grow. Those conditions include:
- Water - Different mold types require varying amounts of liquid before growth begins.
- Temperature - Normal indoor temperatures will promote mold growth.
- Time - Initial mold colonizers can take hold within one day after being exposed to an adequate water supply.
Microscopic mold spores naturally occur almost everywhere, both outdoors and indoors. This makes it impossible to remove all mold from a home or business. Therefore, mold remediation reduces the mold spore count back to its natural or baseline level.
