Mold growth in a home most commonly occurs in areas like bathrooms, basements, crawlspaces and kitchens but can occur anywhere where three conditions exist together. These three conditions that can contribute to and promote mold growth are moisture, warmth and food.
Often the moisture in a home that promotes mold growth comes from an existing condition that goes unnoticed for a period. There are many sources of unwanted moisture can exist in homes and buildings.
Source of mold moisture could be the result of problems and issues such as:
- a slow leak in a pipe behind a wall
- a leak in supply lines to refrigerators
- dishwashers, under sink cabinets, water heaters and more
- seepage from groundwater
- roof leaks
Warmth is Another Contributing Factor in Mold Growth
➢ As the temperature increases and reaches dew point moisture begins to form on materials in the immediate environment thus creating a good space for mold to begin to flourish. Dew Point doesn’t need to be reached however for mold to grow.
➢ Mold can typically thrive in environments with temperatures ranging from as low as forty degrees up to One-hundred degrees Fahrenheit. While mold has been found growing on just about every type of surface, it typically finds its food and is most commonly found growing on the cellulosic items in your home. These items include carpets, rugs, drywall, clothing, anything wood and more. If the food exists and the moisture is there, mold can begin to grow as quickly as within 48 hours.
How to Get Rid of Mold the Right Way
There are many factors to consider when planning to remediate mold in a property. The health and safety of the occupants and technicians, finding and fixing the source of the moisture, the amount of dehumidification and drying needed and the appropriate removal methods for the project all are a few of the many things that need to be planned for.
➢ At Water Damage, Inc. we address these issues with the latest in mold remediation knowledge and technology.
Mold Remediation Services – Tasks, Procedures, Process
A few of the many things we do in a mold remediation project to address these and other job-related needs include:
- Setting containment and other barriers prior to beginning the job. This keeps the mold from spreading to unaffected areas of the home and keeps it away from occupants during removal. Along with containment and barriers, we plan the most efficient and safest exit of mold affected materials from your property to further prevent mold spores from affecting other areas of your home and its contents.
- WDI utilizes equipment like air scrubbers, dehumidifiers and air movers to properly dry and flush contaminated air from the indoor environment and make up that air with cleaner non-mold contaminated air.
- Tools such as thermo-hygrometers, moisture meters and infrared cameras allow us to measure critical factors like relative humidity and the moisture content of both the air and affected materials which are important pieces of information in making sure the job is remediated efficiently. Our cameras and meters can also help to track down the source of the moisture causing the mold if it is unknown.
- Trainings and Professional certifications so that our knowledge and methods are current with the latest in mold remediation best practices and standards.
At Water Damage Inc. our Managers and technicians have managed hundreds of mold remediation projects in homes and buildings in and around the Denver metro area.
