How Does Mold Form or Grow?

Mold can grow as long as the environment is suitable. The suitable environment we’re talking about is a combination of a variety of factors such as moisture, food, and temperature. When a space is not cleaned for a significant period of time, it attracts dust and other elements that support mold. Mold starts forming at this stage, which offers food, part of the living conditions mold needs.

The moisture part is offered by general humidity, burst pipes or floods. You may have noticed that mold mostly grows in the basement. This is because humidity greatest under the ground, which encourages mold growth. Additionally, warm temperatures facilitate the favorable conditions of mold growth. If all these factors are present, then it’s likely that mold growth will occur.


How to Identify Mold Growth

The most common places where you may find mold growth are the areas that don’t receive adequate natural light and are very humid. Areas that are consistently wet, like water tanks, bathrooms, kitchens, laundry rooms etc. are similarly prone to mold growth. Concrete surfaces that receive lots of water flow over them also come under the same category.

Further, mold can grow:

  • In wooden surfaces
  • Behind walls
  • Under carpet and flooring
  • Attics and crawlspaces
  • Furniture and decorative pieces

Discoloration, bulging and peeling paint are signs of mold growth on the walls. Also, gray-green spots and strange odors are signs of mold in attic, crawlspace mold, bathroom mold and kitchen mold. If you’re experiencing frequent allergies, it’s also a sign that you need to contact mold remediation Macomb County and Oakland County.


Dangers and Risks of Mold Growth
