Mold Growth Happens Because of Indoor Moisture at Your Property

Because common building materials are made of organic materials that molds use as food to sustain themselves, having a trained and certified Mold Remediation Technician identify and eliminate the mold in your home or office is the best way of preventing future mold growth.

All types of mold thrive in damp, dark areas. Common areas to find mold include out-of-the-way plumbing pipes that lead to bathrooms, kitchens, and HVAC units. In addition, toxic mold growth may be caused by incomplete drying of materials like drywall. Leaky roofs, building maintenance problems, indoor plumbing problems, or even high humidity can lead to mold growth inside homes, schools, or office buildings. Another source of mold growth is flooding.

Mold Growth Can Cause Health Problems, Structural Damages & More

For significant mold growth to occur, there must be a source of water (which could be invisible humidity), a source of food, and a substrate capable of sustaining growth. Common building materials, such as plywood, drywall, furring strips, carpets, and carpet padding are all food for molds. In carpet, invisible dust and cellulose are the food sources (see also dust mites).

After a single incident of water damage, molds often grow inside walls and become dormant. They are re-activated by a subsequent incident of high humidity. Studies show that mycotoxin levels, which threaten human health, are perceptibly higher in buildings that have once had a water incident (source CMHC).
