How Does Mold Form?
Mold doesn’t really “form” so much as it takes root and spreads quickly. Mold is actually everywhere around us in the form of spores floating through the air. These spores are small living organisms that are looking for somewhere they can take root, grow, and reproduce. To do so, they require three conditions:
- A source of moisture: Usually in the form of either high humidity or a damp surface that remains wet for quite some time.
- A source of nutrients: Mold consumes carbon-based material, meaning everything from wood to cotton to food can make a great foundation for a mold colony.
- Protection from sunlight: mold spores can’t survive in UV light, so they need to be protected from harmful radiation. This is why mold typically forms in dark places like closets and beneath sinks.
Once a spore takes root, it can spread rapidly. Mold grows and multiplies at an extraordinary rate, meaning even a small colony can grow to a huge problem in as little as just a few short days. It can take as little as 24 hours for mold colonies big enough to be seen easily by the naked eye to appear, and in many cases, the problem is actually considerably worse beneath the surface. Colonies are usually at their worst inside their walls, where limited airflow and containment means moisture levels remain high and near-total darkness provides great protection from sunlight.
Completely getting rid of a colony once it spreads is an extremely difficult task, and runs the risk of filling your air with even more spores that could potentially cause health hazards as well as allow the mold to spread to other areas of your property. This is why professional mold removal is a must. While some DIY methods are out there, the EPA and most professional sources discourage attempting self-cleanup jobs, even on non-toxic mold species.
