Mold requires certain ingredients to grow, including warm temperatures, a ready supply of water, and available food. In nature, mold is responsible for the breakdown of organic material; most molds prefer to consume cellulose, a plant-based fiber, which is found in many household building and decorative materials. Thus, certain areas and items in your home can be more susceptible to mold, either because of their composition or their ability to readily absorb water.
- Drywall, gypsum, wood, and plywood are all easily digestible materials for molds, and common places to discover mold growth.
- Molds can also attack paper, cardboard, and organic adhesives, as well as wallpaper and particle board.
- Mold also grows easily on painted surfaces, tile grout, and fabrics such as carpeting, upholstery, and curtains.
