When water intrudes into your property, mold growth can start in as little as 48 hours. Under certain conditions, depending on temperature and level of humidity, it takes 24 to 72 hours for mold to germinate and grow. Generally, the spores begin to colonize in 3 to 12 days and can start to be seen in about 15-20 days. The following is a little bit of information about mold.
Before mold remediation can begin, the sources of water or moisture must be found and taken care of. If not handled properly, mold can return and spread more than what was originally there.
Mold can be found anywhere, outdoors and indoors.
If your home has a humidifier, that could create additional moisture in the home, even though it is meant to keep the air moist and prevent dry air, sometimes mold can grow in certain places.
Mold spores flourish on moisture and heavy wet, dark areas. The spores can quickly colonize when exposed to water, dark, dirty (Category 3) areas. These colonies may produce allergens and irritants.
Mold spores are often floating in the air and may enter your home through windows or HVAC systems or just by you being outside, can carry mold spores with you.
Mold can sometimes produce a strong, musty odor.
