Any home or business can rapidly move toward becoming invaded with mold with the presentation of a water source, similar to a rooftop or pipes leak. Mold can spread all through a property in as quick as 48 to 72 hours and can deliver allergens and aggravations that can possibly cause the risk of your families health.

According to IICRC S520, “Molds are microorganisms that utilize organic substrates as nutrient sources in the presence of moisture.” Fungi (molds) can find a food source in a variety of common materials in our indoor environment, such as wood, wallpaper, upholstery, and even dust.

Mold can grow on virtually any organic substance or building material comprised of wood, wallpapers, drywall, carpet, paint, adhesives, fabrics, ducting, and insulation.  Mold is in the air everywhere, and when it meets a damp indoor spot with little or no UV light, it begins digesting and growing.  This process produces thousands of microscopic spores that are released into the air while the destructive organism eventually damages the materials on which they feed and grow.

Typical problem situations encountered include:

  • Natural weather disasters
  • Equipment malfunctions
  • Poor facility design or maintenance
  • Improper clean-up after a problem
  • Delayed remediation after an event
  • Failure to maintain proper humidity levels inside of property

 

What causes indoor mold to grow?

The primary factor that limits the growth of mold indoors is a lack of moisture. Substantial indoor mold growth occurs in the presence of moisture inside the building envelope. Moisture can come from rainwater leaking through faulty gutters or a roof in disrepair, from a foundation leak, or even from condensation on windows or pipes. Water also can come from leaks in the plumbing or sewage system inside the structure.

Due to the serious health hazard that mold poses, it is essential to dry the building structure and contents after water damage situations as soon as possible. Studies of mold growth on building materials, such as plywood, have found that mold grows on materials that remain wet for 48-72 hours.
