Thus far, the winter season has been a wet one for California – and there’s more on the way. For a state in which drought warnings and low rainfall amounts seem to be the norm, many are welcoming the winter rains.
But there are downsides to the torrent of rain, including mudslides, flooding and significant mold growth.
In this issue, we’ll talk about how mold can experience an explosion of growth after such torrential storms.
HOW MOLD TAKES ADVANTAGE OF HEAVY STORMS
More than anything else, mold needs moisture to grow. Being able to grow in warm and cool climates, mold is not picky at all about temperatures.
Once it gains a foothold in your home or business, mold will need nutrients to sustain itself and grow. Luckily for the mold spores, but quite unlucky for us, just about all of how buildings and homes are chockfull of organic supplies that mold can feast upon, including building materials, home furnishings and personal belongings.
Although conditions like moisture, temperature and light may favor one type of mold over another, there are often times more than one single type of mold growing in one area.
WHAT YOU CAN DO TO GET THE BALL ROLLING FOR MOLD REMOVAL
The longer you allow mold to grow unchecked in your home or business, the more dangerous its effects can be and the more difficult it will be to remove.
