Mold is one of the most troublesome consequences of water damage and excessive moisture. This fungus is very opportunistic so if your property provides an ideal environment for it, mold will thrive. Excessive moisture, darkness, and warmth will encourage mold growth, that’s why it’s important to keep your property dry and allow some sunlight to come in.
Mold is naturally present in the air; no matter how clean and purified it is, so the only way to avoid it is to control the moisture in your home. Mold requires a food source in addition to moisture to grow and it typically uses cellulose which is naturally present in drywall, wood, and other such organic building materials. Mold consumes the cellulose which weakens the building materials and compromises its structural integrity.
If mold is allowed to grow, it can permanently damage the affected materials and cause discoloration. Mold also has a tendency to spread quickly so you’ll soon find it thriving in other, habitable areas of your property as well. Mold colonies will release spores in the air that can cause respiratory problems and allergic reactions, as well as spread the growth.
