How Long Does It Take for Mold to Grow?

Under the right conditions, mold works quickly:

  • Within a matter of hours – whether there’s been a pipe leak, flood, excess humidity, etc., it only takes a few hours for mold to start growing.
  • Within a day or two – mold will start growing as it finds new materials.
  • Within a week or two – as spores keep spreading, you’ve got a full-blown infestation to tackle.

And mold spores are impossible to see. They travel via air and water, finding new spaces to thrive in and continue growing the infestation.

Our mold damage remediation team in Dayton has specialized equipment and advanced techniques that allow us to find the source of the infestation, remove all growth, and test the air quality to ensure levels are normal.

What Is Involved With Mold Remediation?

Mold remediation is an intricate process that requires a skilled professional to identify mold sources, eliminate mold, and ultimately restore any affected areas. The steps of successful mold removal include inspection, containment, removal, and source elimination.

First, our mold specialist will carefully inspect the area of mold growth as this will provide essential information needed to determine the mold’s origin. We will then contain the affected area to prevent any further spread of the mold during the removal process.

Our remediation experts will work on removing visible mold colonies including moldy materials or any sources causing persistent dampness that can potentially lead to future mold problems. Finally, we will repair any damage to walls, ceilings, and other surfaces where the mold was growing.

How do I know if I need mold remediation?

Determining whether you need mold remediation involves looking for several signs and symptoms. Visible mold growth is a clear indicator that remediation is necessary, as mold can appear as black, green, white, or other colored spots and may be fuzzy or slimy in texture. A persistent musty or earthy smell, especially in damp areas like basements, bathrooms, or kitchens, often indicates mold presence. Even if you can't see the mold, the odor suggests that mold spores are present and growing.

Signs of past or present water damage, such as water stains, discoloration, or peeling paint and wallpaper, can indicate mold growth. Mold thrives in moist environments, so any area that has experienced water leaks or flooding is susceptible to mold. Unexplained health issues, particularly respiratory problems, can be a sign of mold exposure. Symptoms may include persistent coughing or sneezing, nasal congestion or runny nose, sore throat, skin rashes or irritation, headaches, eye irritation, and worsening of asthma symptoms.

Homes with consistently high humidity levels (above 60%) are more likely to have mold problems. Use a hygrometer to measure humidity levels in your home, especially in areas prone to dampness. Frequent condensation on windows, walls, or pipes can create an environment conducive to mold growth. If you notice condensation, it may be a sign of poor ventilation or high humidity, both of which can lead to mold problems.

Peeling, bubbling, or cracking paint and wallpaper can indicate moisture intrusion, which often leads to mold growth behind the surfaces. If your home has had mold problems in the past, it’s possible they could recur. Regularly check the areas that were previously affected to ensure mold has not returned. If you suspect mold but cannot identify visible signs, a professional mold inspection can help. Professionals use specialized tools and techniques to detect hidden mold and assess the extent of the problem.

If you notice any of these signs or symptoms, it’s advisable to contact ServiceMaster by Angler - Dayton to assess the situation and take the necessary steps to remove the mold safely and effectively.
