What is needed for mold growth?

Mold is an active living organism. Like many living things it only requires a few things to grow. Do you know what they are?

  1. Food is one of the main things required to foster mold growth. The food source can be any organic material. 
  2. Mold Spores are necessary for mold growth. They can be found in every environment even if you do not see active growth.
  3. Moisture is another requirement to foster active growth. 
  4. Time & Temperature. Mold can grow in any environment and in most temperatures; from a damp and humid basement to the dry desert to food left in the refrigerator too long.

If you see active mold growth feel free to call SERVPRO of Salem West at (503) 393-9999 for an inspection and estimate for professional clean-up.
