Helpful Information — Frequently Asked Questions about Mold

What is Mold?

Molds are forms of fungi found all year round both indoors and outdoors. Another common term for mold is mildew. There are thousands of species of mold and they can be any color. Many times, mold can be detected by a musty odor. Most fungi, including molds, produce microscopic cells called spores that spread easily through the air.

What Causes Mold Growth?

Mold requires nutrients, water, oxygen and favorable temperatures to grow. Nutrients for mold are present in dead organic material such as wood, paper or fabrics; mold can also derive nutrients from some synthetic products such as paints and adhesives. Mould requires moisture and thrive at normal indoor temperatures.

What Is Black Mold?

The news media often refer to black mold or toxic black mold. It is usually associated with Stachybotrys chartarum, a type of greenish-black mold commonly associated with heavy water damage. Not all molds that appear to be black are Stachybotrys. The known health effects from exposure to Stachybotrys are similar to other common molds but may be associated with more severe health effects in some people.

How Does Mold Get Into Buildings?

Most, if not all, of the mold, found indoors come from outdoor sources. It needs moisture to grow and becomes a problem only where there is water damage, high humidity, or dampness. Common sources of indoor moisture that cause mold problems to include flooding, roof and plumbing leaks, damp basements or crawl spaces, or any moisture condensation on cold surfaces. Bathroom showers and steam from cooking may also create problems if not well ventilated.

How Can I Prevent Mold Growth?

Controlling excess moisture is the key to preventing and stopping indoor mold growth. Keeping susceptible areas in the home clean and dry is very important. Ventilate or use exhaust fans (vented to the outdoors) to remove moisture where it accumulates, particularly in bathrooms, kitchens, and laundry areas.

Clothes dryers should be vented to the outside. Repair water leaks promptly, and either dry out and clean or replace water-damaged materials. Materials that stay wet for more than 48 hours are likely to produce mold growth.

Lowering humidity indoors helps prevent condensation problems. To lower humidity during humid weather, use air conditioners and dehumidifiers. Proper exterior wall insulation helps prevent condensation from forming inside during cold weather.

What Is "Mold Assessment?"

Mold assessment involves an inspection of a building to evaluate whether mold growth is present, and to what extent. Samples may be taken to determine the amount and types of mold that are present. The inspection includes exterior (roof, foundation, gutters, windows, etc.) and an interior inspection of the property to identify potential sources of moisture that can cause mold growth.

What Is "Mold Remediation?"

Mold remediation is the cleanup and removal of mold growth from surfaces and/or contents in a building. It also refers to actions taken to prevent mold from growing.
