Moisture - A Must for Mold

The most critical requirement for fungal growth is moisture. Moisture is essential for the metabolic activities of fungi. If you have visible mold, you have a moisture problem.

Spores remain dormant when materials are dry and the humidity is below 60%. Most residual odor problems occur from incomplete drying and fungi are the major cause. Dry rot is the result of mold damage after the moisture is removed. Microbial contamination is a moisture control problem. Insuring that materials are dried rapidly is one of the best ways to reduce or retard mold growth indoors. Control the moisture content of air spaces, wet surfaces and organic food sources and you control the problem.

If you see visible mold in your home or business, call a professional. The cause of the problem must be identified and remedied before the mold can be remediated or the problem will be recurring.
