What is Mold?
Mold is a fungi that thrives indoors and outdoors. No one knows exactly how many mold species exist. However, some experts put them in the range of three hundred thousand (maybe even more!). Mold is a microorganism that spreads quickly and replicates itself by producing spores. They survive in all conditions, whether it is sunny, rainy, hot, dry, wet or extremely cold.
How Does Mold Enter a Building?
Molds feel right at home in humid surroundings. These moist environments could be caused by a broken pipe, faucet leak or rain. Without water, molds cannot survive. Molds also need a food source to grow—oxygen and a temperature between 40 degrees and 100 degrees F.
How Do Molds Spread?
For molds to develop and duplicate, they need just one organic food source —cellulose. Cellulose is found in building materials like drywall and wood.
