Conditions In Wexford Might Be Right For Mold

6/19/2019 (Permalink)

It is estimated that more than 1 million types of mold currently exist, but less than 10 percent have actually been named. This means that mold is very common in both indoor and outdoor environments. While mold and humans can sometimes co-exist without issue, there are certain species of mold that can cause serious health effects for some people.

If the right conditions exist, mold will grow.  Some of those conditions are:

•Water - Different mold types require varying amounts of liquid before growth begins.  
•Temperature - Normal indoor temperatures will promote mold growth.
•Time - Initial mold colonizers can take hold within one day after being exposed to an adequate water supply.

Mold growth can occur in any home, so it’s important to keep an eye out for situations that might promote mold activity. Roof and chimney leaks, wet basements, and condensation from ducts that dampen the surrounding insulation are just a few examples of issues that make a house a good environment for mold growth.
