Mold: Where Can You Find It & How Does it Spread

4/24/2019 (Permalink)

Mold can be found almost everywhere.  Mold can be found year-round both indoors and outdoors.  The key is to prevent it from growing and/or reproducing or spreading.

So how does mold reproduce or spread?  Molds reproduce or spread by releasing spores. Mold spores are kind of like a mature dandelion that has gone to seed and gone white. When disturbed, these spores can travel through the air, in water, or on animals, much like when you blow on a mature dandelion and the seeds go floating through the air to land in a new spot and start to grow there.  So, if you discover a mold problem in your home or business, it’s important not to disturb it.  Instead, call our professionals for advice and/or assistance in cleaning it up.

We all know what a dandelion seed needs to grow once it is released; soil, sunshine, and water.  In our next blog post, we will talk about what mold spores need to grow.
