Mold growth occurs when excessive moisture accumulates in a room due to high amounts of water damage or indoor humidity. As the duration for which an indoor area is subjected to high humidity increases, so does the probability of mold growth and damage. Mold spores are a part of all natural environments and do not take root under common conditions. Damages due to mold growth can pose serious threats if not dealt with timely. It is crucial that the mold removal and the cleanup process is initiated as soon as practically possible to keep the damage from spreading further.
The three important factors molds need to thrive are high levels of moisture, warm surroundings of around 60-80 degrees F, and organic matter to consume. Since we cannot alter the organic materials available, or temperature of the environment, we must focus on controlling moisture levels. Molds can start to grow within a period of one to two days is an area has sufficient moisture. This is one of the main reasons to avoid water damage completely or get it cleaned up almost immediately when it comes to our notice.
