The Science of Mold
Mold is classified as a micro-organism in the fungi family. To thrive and continue to grow mold needs the same elements that we as humans do: water, food, the right temperature and oxygen. The amount of moisture in the environment also factors into mold growth. Mold needs moisture to multiply and continue to grow. This makes understanding the environment your mold is growing in especially important. Mold uses carbon as its “food” source to grow. It extracts the carbon from the substrate that it lives on. As mold is consuming the carbon, it releases toxins into the air.
At Brahler’s Cleaning and Restoration, we strive to education our homeowners on the steps you can take to avoid environments that are likely to promote mold growth. One of the main steps to avoid mold regrowth is understanding why you have mold in your home and correcting the problem. To do this we may need to check for pipes that could be leaking, roof leaks and evaluate your ventilation. During a mold remediation we not only clean and treat for mold we also educate our homeowners on understanding how and where it grows, where it may have originated and what environmental changes will need to be made to prevent regrowth.
