What Causes Mold

To understand what causes mold, one must understand that mold spores are all around us in the air.  When a leak or other source causes water or moisture to accumulate in a dark area such as a wall or vent, mold can start to grow.  In some substrates that absorb and hold water, mold tends to thrive if water is present.

Many of the building materials used in our homes, schools and offices are excellent mediums for holding moisture and promoting the growth of mold.  Carpet, wood and drywall all hold water when exposed to leaking pipes, leaking roofs, or faulty condensation collectors.  Poor maintenance or faulty plumbing can easily lead to severe mold infestations in walls and ductwork.  Mold spores in the air are what causes mold but without moisture retention, mold growth cannot start and become a problem.
