How Long Does it Take for Mold to Grow?

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 2, 2016

old infestation and growth often occurs indoors following water damage. Mold, like any other life form, needs water to grow. Extract the water, remove the moisture and you have stopped the mold from growing but you have not eliminated it yet.

So, how long does it take for mold to grow? Only a few centimeters/inches of water (or even just high humidity) can create a hazardous situation in your home as it just takes a few short days for mold to develop. Standing water in your basement or house can quickly create mold, leaving you with hefty clean up bills and increased risk of illness. And once your home has been infested with mold, there is little that can be done other than professional mold remediation to take care of the infestation problem.

Mold development is an easy three step process: Moisture, Food source (organic matter) and warm temperatures.

What Does Mold Need to Grow?

Don't Wait! Mold Spreading Fast

It's always crucial to stop the mold growth in your property immediately when you notice it. Mold and mildew need to be isolated and segregated in order to stop the contamination as well as not to allow the mold spores to spread through the building. This will drastically decrease the chance of permanent damage to your property.

The major problem with mold spores is they can consume your belongings such as furniture, clothes, etc. Basically, anything porous. In fact, if mold is present, your office or home is not safe from mold contamination. Make no mistake! water damage and mold growth go hand in hand to double your troubles.

Some mold on walls and in other places indoors is called black mold or stachybotrys chartarum. It's a type of indoor mold which is considered toxic. Black mold manifestations are the production of allergens and irritants. However, many types of mold can produce allergens and irritants. These are only few of the many symptoms that mold could cause:

Allergic reactions, Asthma attack, Ear inflammation, Eye irritation, Fatigue, Headache, Nasal congestion, Runny nose, Sinus infections, Sore throat and many others.

Those that are considered at high risk of symptoms from mold spore exposure are infants, children, pregnant women, elderly people with allergies and individuals with respiratory problems.

Stay out of infested areas and don't touch it with your bare hands. If you suspect that your property is developing mold, call us. We can take samples for a mold test, or can just take care of the problem entirely.
