Mold only grows when conditions are right- it won’t grow when submerged in water and it won’t grow in dry conditions. When your home is affected by water- whether from a slow leak, or a large flood- the moisture introduced can start mold growth quite quickly. Most experts say that water and moisture should be managed within 24-48 hours in order to stop mold growth before it causes damage.
There are hundreds of species of mold that can be found in a home, and they can be classified into about 12 different types. All mold needs the same four things to grow- water, food, air and the correct temperature. Mold is all around us and can wait for years for the right conditions to begin growing. This opportunity usually comes when water and moisture are introduced. Most people think of black mold first when water damage occurs. Stachybotrys is the name for this type of mold and black mold water damage is serious. However, any type of mold should be quickly contained and the area affected should be dried and cleaned, taking away the conditions that would allow it to grow. Steps can be taken to prevent future mold growth of any kind.
