When water intrudes onto your property, mold growth can start in as little as 48 hours. Consider the following facts: Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors & out. Mold spores are microscopic, float along in the air, and may enter your home through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems. They may even hitch a ride on your clothing or a pet. Mold spores thrive on moisture. They can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce harmful toxins. Before mold remediation begins, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise the mold may return. Mold often produces a strong, musty odor, which can lead you to possible mold problem areas. Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth.
