What is Mold?

Molds are fungi that are found both indoors and outdoors. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), there are an estimated tens of thousands to perhaps three hundred thousand or more different species of mold.

 

Where Does Mold Come From?

Mold grows best in warm, damp, and humid conditions. It spreads by making microscopic spores that are airborne.

  • Mold can grow in as little as 48 hours.
  • Molds thrive in moist environments created by a flood, slow leak, broken pipe or just high humidity.
  • Mold needs a food source, such as wood or drywall, oxygen and a temperature between 40-100 degrees F to grow
  • Earthquakes
  • Wildfires and Mudslides
  • Emergency Services
