Understanding Mold: What Is It?

Mold consists of microscopic organisms found both indoors and outdoors. The purpose of mold is to aid in decomposition and help break down organic materials.

By aiding in decomposition, mold has the potential to break down walls or wood flooring. Growing on moist surfaces, mold can appear brown, black, gray-green, gray, or sometimes white. They commonly produce a moldy, musty, or ammonia-like scent.

Mold is present in almost every home, and is typically found in small concentrations in kitchens or bathrooms. As mold grows, they release thousands of tiny spores that travel on air currents. Mold can begin to grow within just a day or two after a water pipe break or roof leak.

The most common indoor molds are Cladosporium, Penicillium, and Aspergillus.

Causes of Mold & Biohazard damage

Mold needs three things to grow:

  1. First of all, mold requires a source of food. It likes to feast on porous materials like carpeting, sheetrock, ceiling tile and cloth. In essence every home in America offers a veritable smorgasbord for mold, as the very building materials are a prime feeding ground. 
  2. Secondly mold needs an environment with a stable, comfortable temperature. Different molds grow at different temperatures, but unfortunately the temperature range that molds prefer is also the comfortable temperature range for human habitation. This means that our homes are perfectly suited to contamination if mold can get 
  3. The final thing it needs- water. Mold doesn’t require a great deal of water to grow- it can thrive in only 40% to 60% relative humidity. A bathtub overflow, a leaky window or a damaged washing machine hose can be more than enough to spur a full-scale mold contamination. If not treated promptly, water damage in the home can create an ideal environment for mold to live in and live well. 

Remember the common sources of moisture are:

  • Roof leaks
  • Indoor plumbing leaks
  • Outdoor drainage problems
  • Damp basements and crawl spaces
  • Steam from the bathroom or kitchen
  • Condensation on cool surfaces
  • Humidifiers
  • Wet clothes drying inside the home
  • A clothes dryer venting indoors
  • Poor or improper ventilation of heating and cooking appliances

Consequences of Mold damage

In the case the mold is left unchecked, it could further result in reduced indoor air quality and an unsafe environment, including  a variety of health effects, or none at all. 

Remember mold spores are everywhere in our environment, both indoors and outdoors and, like seeds, wait patiently for the proper conditions to grow. These microscopic spores float along in the air and can enter a home or business through windows and HVAC systems. What enables the mold spores to grow into colonies which can threaten the health of the household is moisture.

Some people are sensitive to molds. For these people, exposure to molds can lead to symptoms such as stuffy nose, wheezing, and red or itchy eyes, or skin. Some people, such as those with allergies to molds or with asthma, may have more intense reactions.

In the event of signs of mold growth in your house or residence

  • Inspect buildings for evidence of water damage and visible mold. Different types of mold can appear in your home environment. Even if you haven’t experienced significant water damage, a problem as simple as a leaking window could lead to mold damage. Consider the common type of mold that may appear:
    • Stachybotrys: it is toxic to humans and animals, you can detect it as black mold.
    • Penicillium: it is a type of fungus that can cause severe allergy or aggravate existing allergic conditions.
    • Cladosporium: Most commonly seen as a green or black color on walls and ceilings.
    • Alternaria: it is dangerous to humans.
    • Aspergillus: it contains several hundred species of mold.
  • Find out if you can correct the conditions that cause mold growth (for example, water leaks, condensation, seepage, or flooding).
  • Control humidity levels;
  • Quickly fix leaky roofs, windows and pipes;
  • Thorough cleaning and drying after a flood;
  • Ventilation of shower, laundry and kitchen areas.
  • Consider not using rugs in rooms or areas like bathrooms or basements that can get high humidity.

If you are not sure if you have mold in your home, we recommend using a licensed mold hygenist to test your areas of concern.
