The really short answer to this is “excess moisture,” which probably doesn’t come as much of a surprise. And in Florida, we have plenty of moisture! That is, in the form of humidity.
Humidity is a comfort issue first and foremost. Any relative humidity level above 50% doesn’t allow our bodies to sweat and, as a result, we cannot cool off. Running your air conditioner at a lower temperature helps a little, since lower temperatures do decrease moisture. However, your air conditioner is not built for this job and does very little for mold remediation in West Palm Beach, FL.
Besides, what if you aren’t home or your home is a part-time vacation home, and therefore you aren’t even using your air conditioner? Well, then you’ve just compounded the problem. What causes the worst of mold growth in situations like this?
