Let’s Talk Mold

Did you know that there are over 100,000 different kinds of fungi in the world that we know of? Mind you this figure is only for the kind we already know about, there might be even more than this. Mold is what we call a non-specific kind of fungi that grows on walls, ceilings and floors both in and out of our homes. It can be caused by one or more kinds of fungi growing together in one place and once it starts spreading, it can be pretty difficult to stop without the help of a mold cleaning service.

Even if you don’t see it, fungi is almost anywhere there’s even the slightest amount of moisture and it spreads through air bourn spores that are basically everywhere as well. There’s not too much that you can do to make sure that these spores never enter your house but what you can do is make sure that you aren’t encouraging these spores to get planted on your things and grow. You can’t avoid organic materials that case it go grow but you can keep things in check rather easily.

If there are two things that mold needs to grow anywhere then it’s high temperatures (we’re talking mid 70 degrees and upwards) and humidity. Mold also likes growing in dark places with little to no sunlight which is why you’re more likely to be greeted with mold in your attic and your basement – it can also grow in closer places like the cabinets of your kitchen if you aren’t mindful of its growth. If you do run into mold in the dark and humid corners of your place then the only way you can get rid of it is by the help of a mold cleaning service that has the means to completely eradicate the growth.
