Mold spores are everywhere but only become a real issue when they are able to settle in a wet or damp environment. For most cases of mold, the source is primarily caused by water damage or a water leak that has often gone unnoticed. In order to create the perfect environment for mold growth, all that is required is high levels of moisture, humidity, and a dark environment void of sunlight, and organic matter. When it comes to organic matter, there are several building materials which mold can feast on, such as cellulose, which is commonly found in wood, drywall, and insulation.
In order to eliminate mold from your property, it must be removed and cleaned using the appropriate processes. Simply wiping off mold with an all-purpose spray cleaner is not sufficient and will only disturb the mold growth causing it to release additional spores into the air, causing other areas of your property to be infested.
