Mold Growth - Where to Find it?
Mold growth occurs when mold spores settle on a surface at the proper temperature, with appropriate food sources, and with the proper amount of moisture. An adequate amount of moisture in materials is typically the limiting factor preventing mold growth as well as the easiest to control.
In the summer, when air-conditioning is in use, mold growth can occur in buildings where the cooling systems are oversized, undersized or poorly maintained. Unplanned air flow in buildings can also create conditions favorable to mold growth.
Molds gradually destroy whatever they grow on, so preventing mold growth also prevents damage to building materials and furnishings.
Every mold damage scenario is different, and requires a unique solution, but the general mold remediation process stays the same. The steps listed below illustrate our “typical” process:
