Mold spores, which are tiny microscopic ‘seeds’, can be found virtually everywhere including inside homes. It takes 24-48 hours for mold to start to grow. Mold only needs something to attach itself to, food and moisture to grow. High humidity levels inside of a home can cause mold. You can check the humidity level inside your home by purchasing an indoor humidity monitor. You can keep humidity levels down by purchasing a humidistat. This will work in place of your thermostat.
The temperature inside of your home has nothing to do with mold growth. Humidity is the culprit. If you cannot see the mold or smell it but you are experiencing worsening allergy-like symptoms you might have mold. Controlling excess moisture is the key to preventing and stopping indoor mold growth. Mold can be on clothing, on or behind furniture, on walls, on the underside of wallpaper and can even get into the building’s support structure. The longer the mold has been present and growing the greater the extent of the damage.

Improper cleanup can cause the problem to go away temporarily and cause more damage. The type of health symptoms that may occur include coughing, wheezing, nasal and throat conditions. People with asthma or allergies who are sensitive to mold may notice their asthma or allergy symptoms worsen. Individuals who have weak or compromised immune system, like the elderly, small children and those who are already ill are at risk of developing serious fungal respiratory infections if they are exposed to a moldy environment. Mold should be removed by a certified mold remediator that has the proper equipment and skill to get the job done right.
