What Causes Mold Growth in the Home?

Monday, August 13th, 2018

signs of mold growth on white wallThe 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?

Preventing Mold Growth in Your Home

Monday, October 17th, 2016

High humidity is a well-known problem here in Florida. It makes us feel hotter than we already are on almost a daily basis as it doesn’t allow sweat to evaporate from the skin, and it can impact our indoor comfort as well. Humidity forces your air conditioner to work harder to cool you off, which is not good for energy efficiency.

Most importantly, the excess moisture brought on by high humidity levels creates a rather nasty problem in homes: mold. Mold spores spread easily and create health hazards for even the healthiest of homeowners. It can grow on carpet, clothing, the backside of drywall, areas inside walls, and more. While our staff includes licensed mold remediators, we’d like to share with you how you can potentially reduce the risk of mold growth in the first place.
