Mold Facts...

  • Molds are found EVERYWHERE, and can grow on almost any substance when moisture is present. 
  • They reproduce by spores, which are carried by air currents.  
  • When spores land on a moist surface suitable for life, they begin to grow.
  • Mold is normally found indoors at levels which do not affect most healthy individuals. 
  • Spores can germinate after 12 hours in some conditions and some grow in 24-48 hours. 
  • Houses offer an ample food supply for mold growth: drywall, wood, insulation and paper. 
    • When these materials get damp or wet, settled spores can become growing molds.
  • Mold may colonize in 1 to 12 days depending on the type of Mold.
