Where does mold come from?

Knowing what causes mold to grow is your best defense in preventing it not only from spreading, but also from developing in the first place. All mold starts with spores, which need these three things to grow:

  • Nutrients: Spores need something to feed on if they’re going to develop into mold and spread. Cellulose is a common food for indoor spores and can be found in wood, drywall, natural fibers and even soil.
  • Moisture: Caused by high humidity, flooding and stagnant water that has no place to go, moisture helps the decaying process that is caused by mold spores. A lack of moving air can also keep moisture trapped which leads to mold.
  • Time: Once conditions become optimal, mold growth can begin within as little as 24 to 48 hours. Preventing excessive damage is possible if the spread is stopped as early as possible.

How mold could be affecting your health

Effective mold removal is essential to prevent permanent damage not only to your property, but also to your health. Mold can irritate existing health problems and exposure to certain types of mold is a serious risk to humans and animals. In your home, all molds have the potential to cause side effects:

  • Headaches
  • Breathing Difficulties
  • Skin irritation
  • Allergic reactions
  • Aggravation of asthma symptoms
