What is Mold?

Mold is a living organism known as fungi.  It can be found anywhere in Michigan – indoors and outdoors.  There are thousands of different species and mold grows best in damp, humid conditions.  Mold has the ability to grow on and break down almost any organic material such as drywall, paper, carpet, insulation and wood.

Mold spreads and reproduces through the production of mold spores. And while mold growth requires moisture, a mold SPORE can survive the worst environmental conditions; even dry, arid condition’s that typically do not support normal mold growth.

So, once the moisture source returns, the mold spores become active and mold can grow and spread.

Primary sources of moisture for mold infestations include known water damage from plumbing issues or flood waters, but can also include undetected problems, such as dripping pipes or leaking roof flashing.

Mold or mildew often develops in damp, dark areas and can grow on or in:

  • Attics, basements and crawlspaces
  • Ductwork and ceiling tiles
  • Wallpaper, drywall and baseboards
  • Carpet and drapes
  • Furniture

Mold can spread through your Ann Arbor or Washtenaw County MI home or business in a matter of hours.  A little excess humidity and a small leak, and mold is almost guaranteed.
