Mold Growth Infiltrates Wet Dark Environments
Mold requires certain conditions and environments to exist in order to proliferate. And those spores can really move when that happens! Excess water and moisture are the primary catalysts, so the time to be aware of the possibility of mold growth is when you’ve experienced any type of water invasion. We’ve listed below the many ways that mold can enter and take hold in your home and pose Mold related health risk.
THE RIGHT CONDITIONS
Mold needs the right conditions to grow and spread throughout your home. All it needs are a food source, darkness, heat source, oxygen, water – and very little time. That’s why, once some mold is detected, it is extremely important to deal with it before it gets worse!
Even the smallest of leaks can cause mold to grow quite rapidly. This seepage often goes unnoticed until items and materials are compromised or the mold becomes so bad it is clearly visible on walls, flooring or furnishings. By this time, you may even smell the mold – which can have a negative effect on your health as time passes.
Flooding can cause some of the most dangerous kinds of mold, particularly if the flooding is caused by outside influences such as sewage – even the dirty water from your washing machine or dish washer. This type of “black” and “grey” water usually contains contaminants that can grow along with the mold, causing the spores to be breathed in or even inadvertently ingested.
