How does mold grow and why does it grow in my home?

6/21/2018 (Permalink)

Mold is a nasty substance that forms whenever there is an environment that is continually moist, is very dark, and has no moving air. It is a fungus growth that is akin to mildew. It grows from spores that float through the air. When moisture is introduced to that spot where it landed it will have the right conditions to exist. Then the mold can grow out of control if left alone.

Where does mold usually grow in a home?

Spaces such as basements, crawl spaces, closets, attics, behind bathroom walls and under floors where there are leaking pipes are good candidates for the growth of the substance. It grows silently and mostly unnoticed in most situations, and is usually undiscovered in places where no one goes into for extended periods of time.
