Mold generates by producing tiny spores and these spores are moving through the air we breathe, whether we are inside or outside. When these spores land on a damp area within your home, is when a problem begins. Warm temperature and the humidity created by this damp area will create a food source ideal for mold spores to grow. And as long as the food source is present, the mold will continue to grow. Wood, paper, carpet and cellulose are all considered “food” that mold can survive on if damp. This beautiful lake home had water lines break in the middle of winter. The inside of the home created the perfect conditions for mold to grow – moisture, temperature and a food source. In the pictures, notice the wilted ceiling fans from all the moisture and mold growing in nearly every room of the house.
