Causes of Mold

The last thing you want is a house full of mold. But you can’t stop it. No matter how clean you keep your home, it will always contain invisible mold spores. Disinfectants can only do so much because these tiny fungi seeds are an ever-present part of nature’s recycling system. And they fulfill a necessary, vital part in decomposing the organic materials.

It is highly recommended that the mold growing in your home must be handled only by an expert like Emergency Restoration Services LLC in Virginia Beach, VA.

Causes of Mold

What are Mold and Mildew?

Mold is not a plant or an animal. Mold is a microscopic organism that’s part of the fungi kingdom. It occurs in every warm part of the world where there’s a moist environment. The exact number of different mold species is unknown, but scientists estimate that over 100,000 different types of mold microorganisms exist. Statistics from the Center for Disease Control (CDC) in Atlanta report that at least 1,000 species of mold are common in the United States.

What Causes Mold to Grow?

The major reasons behind the mold growth are:

  • Mold spores are everywhere
  • Food or source of energy (organic materials i.e. paper, dust, cloth, starch, etc.)
  • Moisture from high humidity (70%)
  • Optimal temperature (mid 70° F), darkness, and stagnant air
  • Ample supply of Oxygen
  • Lack of sunlight
