Understanding Mold

  • Mold is present both indoors & outdoors, and it is present almost everywhere.
  • Mold spores are microscopic and float along in the air and may enter your home through doors, windows, AC/heating systems, or on your clothing and pets.
  • Mold spores love moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens and irritation.
  • Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water and moisture must be addressed. Otherwise, the mold may return.
  • Mold often produces a strong, musty odor and can lead you to possible mold problem areas.
  • Mold thrives in higher-than-normal humidity. Remember to keep indoor humidity below 45%.
