Mold spores thrive on moisture. They can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens and irritants and have the potential to cause other health effects.
Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed.
Mold often produces a strong, musty odor, and that can indicate possible mold problem areas.
Higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity at or below 45%.
