Mold Facts

9/20/2020 (Permalink)

10 facts about mold:

  • Mold infestation can quickly arise and spread throughout a home in 48-72 hours.
  • Mold is present almost everywhere -- both indoors and outdoors.
  • Mold spores are microscopic.
  • Mold spores thrive on moisture and can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. 
  • Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise, the mold may return.
  • Mold often produces a strong, musty odor and can lead to possible mold problem areas.
  • Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.
  • Microscopic spores serve as a conduit, which allow those spores to float along in the air and enter a home or business through windows and HVAC systems. They can even hitch a ride from your pets and travel indoors.
  • Mold comes in many colors and shapes.

If you suspect that your residential or commercial property has a mold problem, SERVPRO of Carbondale/Marion fits the mold and can inspect, assess and remediate your property.
