What Causes Mold in Homes?

Mold Restoration

Mold is an important part of nature, helping with the decomposition of organic matter and recycling nutrients in ecosystems. While outdoor mold is essential, mold growing indoors presents health hazards and can cause property damage. Molds reproduce via tiny airborne spores that travel virtually anywhere, even in our homes.

Even though traces of mold spores indoors, they need the right “ingredients” to produce mold. Unfortunately, the conditions for mold growth are found in most homes: a food source (such as drywall, carpet, and wood), warmth, darkness, enough time to grow, and most importantly, moisture.
