What You Need to Know About Mold in Your Home

Mold in homes has become such a common occurrence, it seems almost everyone worries at some point about it. In reality, it makes many wonder if mold really is a massive concern that needs to be dealt with. Mold exists everywhere; it’s a pretty omnipresent aspect of life, however, it can become problematic, causing extremely negative health issues if it persists in your home. In many situations, mold comes as a result of an issue that has gone unchecked, such as a leak that wasn’t found until it was too late, or a leaky pipe that didn’t reveal itself quickly enough. Chances are, if your home or commercial space has a musty, unfresh scent about it, there’s a good chance there’s mold lurking behind the scenes. Luckily enough, as scary as the word “mold” is, this problem can be eradicated effectively with the right help.

There are three main factors to mold becoming a problem: there has to be the ideal temperature for it to flourish; there must be adequate amounts of moisture; and it must have a food source. If one of these factors is missing, mold will not be able to cause an issue. However, due to the climate of South Florida, mold can exist quite abundantly due to the high moisture (over 60%), ideal temperatures (generally the average temperature of most homes), and the presence of food (mold enjoys a diet of dust mites and dirt, which exist everywhere), making it pretty darn common. And, if you think only older homes are at risk for mold, think again. Newer, “greener” homes with all kinds of features designed for energy efficiency are seeing mold as a result of their inability to enable “breathing” of the house.
