Understanding Mold

So, what is mold? Mold is a fungus that’s purpose is to decompose organic material but it can pose a serious health risk, especially if it becomes airborne. Mold is typically very light weight and so spores can easily travel in the air to new locations. If the spores land somewhere that is of the right conditions, such as damp, they will start to grow into mold colonies. Mold colonies can present themselves in a range of colours and can often be smelt even if it’s not visible. Mold comes with a musty odour, which is a sign that you might have hidden mold growing in your home.

Mold can grow on any surface as long as it presents the right conditions, this includes drywall or fabric. This means that mold could potentially grow anywhere in your home, but its more prone to places like bathroom or attics where there is more moisture present. It’s also prone to grow behind walls or beneath flooring if there is damp in these places.

Understanding the perfect conditions for mold growth can help us to prevent it from growing. If you resolve obvious causes, such as moisture problems in the home, you help to prevent mold outbreaks and more costly mold remediation.
