Frequently Asked Questions About Mold

What is mold?

Mold is a fungi that can be found both indoors and outdoors. No one knows how many species of mold exist, but estimates range from tens of thousands to perhaps 300,000 or more. Mold spreads and reproduces by making spores that can survive conditions that are too sunny, hot, cold, dry, or wet. When spores are released they can be carried by air or water to new locations.

Where does mold come from?

Mold thrives in moist environments created by floods, slow leaks, broken pipes, or high humidity. Without water, mold cannot grow. Mold also needs a food source, oxygen, and a temperature between 40 degrees and 100 degrees F.

How does mold spread?

For mold to grow and reproduce, they only need an organic food source such as cellulose, which is found in building materials such as wood and drywall.

Are there any warning signs to look for?

If there are dark spots on your ceiling, floors, or walls, this is a sure sign of mold growth. Musty odors and mildew are often signs mold may be growing in your home. Respiratory and allergy symptoms such as coughing, sneezing, trouble breathing, and wheezing are common indicators of mold growth as well. Also, high humidity levels such as condensation on glass and metal surfaces are warning signs of mold.
