How Fast Does Mold Grow And Become A Problem?

Mold Grow And Become A Problem

Mold, sadly, can be found almost everywhere. When mold is present in the indoor setting, however, moisture is typically present. Mold thrives in conditions with temperatures as low as 68°F, poor lighting, and little or no air circulation.

Mold spores have been found to move through the air, bind to some moist surface, and then begin rotting the substrate as it expands. As a result, it is crucial for homeowners to call a mold remediation firm following a flood or fire in their house.

If you find spotted dark, clustered fungal growths in your home or company, do yourself a favor and contact us immediately for professional mold removal services. The notorious black mold, one of the most poisonous organisms on the planet, is responsible for these clustered growths. Learn all you can about it to defend yourself, and don't be afraid to call in the experts!

How Quickly Does Mold Grow?

mold-friendly places

Surprisingly, mold can begin to develop as soon as spores are added to an object. Mold can easily develop in 24 to 48 hours and begin colonizing in 1 to 12 days. Mold is typically a concern before it is found.

Mold can also return long though the mold source has been eliminated because the spores are difficult to kill. That is why it is important to call a mold repair firm for proper and long-term remediation.

When Should I Be Worried That My Home Could Have Mold?

Mold is normally found in homes that have had some issues that are considered to be mold-friendly. Mold-related issues include:

  • Fire
  • Flood
  • Plumbing leaks
  • Leaky Roof
  • Swollen floor boards/walls
  • Water stained ceilings 

Where Does In-Home Mold Tend to Grow?

Mold in the home tends to grow on damp cellulose materials. Homeowners should bear in mind, though, that mold will continue to grow even after the moisture issue has been resolved. At this stage, the mold will go dormant and begin to survive in the absence of moisture. Mold will most likely continue to feed on products such as sheetrock, ceiling tiles, wallpaper, furniture, wood, adhesives, paints, upholstery, and florescent lighting.

What Are the Health Consequences of Mold Exposure?

Mold can be particularly dangerous to humans. Many of the symptoms associated with mold are close to those of a normal cold or allergy disease. As a result, appropriate diagnoses are often missed. However, the following are the most common symptoms associated with mold exposure:

  • Fevers
  • Dizziness
  • Headaches
  • Extreme fatigue
  • Wheezy/coughing
  • Watery/Red Eyes
  • Nasal and sinus congestion
  • Throat irritation
  • Skin irritation
  • Nosebleeds
  • Memory loss

Mold can also cause very severe problems, including death, in children, the elderly, and adults with previously weakened immune systems.
