What causes mold to grow?
Individual mold spores are flowing throughout the open air all of time. When the small amount of spores are breathed outdoors they are combined with such a large portion of fresh air that they rarely have an effect. Sometimes in the spring, the outdoor counts increase and create outdoor allergies; however when moisture is allowed to dwell on a porous surface inside your space, these few mold spores will attach themselves to that surface and begin to grow at a rapid pace. Once attached, it takes much more than household cleaners to break the spores' strong hold.
How do I get rid of mold?
There are over the counter products like KILZ that will slow the growth of the spores. This will only slow the problem and mold can still cause serious health effects if left untreated properly. To ensure your home is completely free of mold, reach out to a certified remediation company like MoldBusters South Carolina.
