What Does Mold Need in Order to Grow?
Is your home or office unintentionally creating an environment for potentially hazardous mold growth? Here are the four components mold must have to grow:
- Warm Temperatures – Mold grows in temperatures above 60-degrees Fahrenheit – its ideal environment is between 77- and 86-degrees Fahrenheit, especially if the area is humid.
- Moisture – Since mold needs water to grow, moisture is one of the most important components to be on the lookout for. This may come from pipe leaks, broken water heaters, roof leaks, and several other water emergencies that should not be ignored. Even the smallest undetected leak can create the ideal environment for mold.
- Oxygen – Another key condition for the fungus to thrive in is a space with access to oxygen. Of course, we can’t remove the oxygen, but we can ensure that your home is properly sealed to block growth from hidden areas such as behind walls or nooks in your attic.
- Food – Mold has an insatiable appetite, and can digest nearly any organic matter, such as wood, drywall, and many foods in your refrigerator. Are you noticing a spot of discoloration on the ceiling? That is a solid indication that mold has begun snacking on your ceiling drywall or wooden trusses.
Without all these conditions in place for mold, it won’t grow or spread, but the spores will remain in a dormant state. This means they’ll wait for the conditions that suit them before growing.
