Causes of Mold Growth

Mold growth is often something that occurs in the aftermath of water damage. It needs moisture and organic food to grow -- moisture being the most crucial. Moisture often settles into softer building materials after water damage, hastening mold growth.

Mold feeds on cellulose in wood, drywall, insulation and other common building materials. Excess moisture is slow to evaporate when trapped in these materials, giving mold the time it needs to feed and thrive.

Innovative Restorations Races Against Mold Growth

The time it takes for mold to grow and appear depends on the mold type, where it's growing and moisture level. Given proper conditions, mold will start to germinate and grow as early as 24 hours after encountering the moisture source.

The longer moisture is present, the greater the chance for mold growth. Mold spores can begin growing within a few hours, spreading into material while populating the air with spores. Mold spores can travel to other moist surfaces and begin mold growth.

How Mold Growth Causes Extensive Damage

Surface materials that enable mold growth are the mold's food source. As it feeds, mold damages surfaces. It ruins structures' integrity and viability. Eventually the material is unsalvageable.

Mold causes allergies, coughing, wheezing, and irritation to your skin and eyes. Prolonged exposure is more hazardous.
