What does mold need to grow?

Mold growth occurs indoors when two main factors are present, moisture and food. Moisture is the most important factor. Controlling moisture helps control mold growth.

Moisture – Mold does not require a lot of water to grow. Mold commonly appears on bathroom tile and grout, basement walls, and areas around windows and sinks. Common sources of water or moisture include roof leaks, condensation due to high humidity or cold spots in a building, slow leaks in plumbing fixtures and floods.

Food – Mold can grow on almost any organic substance. Most buildings are full of organic materials that mold can use as food including paper and wood.

Whether you need commercial or residential mold remediation for a home, business, hospital, school or any other type of building, Disaster One’s certified staff of Mold Remediators, Supervisors, Specialists, and Consultants can assist you in the mold remediation process.
