If you see signs of moisture or know of a water issue in your home there is likely mold growing. As a highly humid environment, Georgia homes are known to be top harbors for excess mold growth. Not only can mold have a great impact on your health, but it can also cause structural damage as well.
The National Center for Healthy Housing has determined that mold growth often appears as a green, gray, black, brown, or other discoloration on a surface. Eventually, mold growth results in the breakdown of the substrate. More than 1,000 types of molds have been found in U.S. homes.
Moisture is the key factor determining mold growth in the home, influencing both the types of mold present and the extent of mold colonization. A variety of materials found in the home, including insulation, wallpaper, glues used to affix carpet, backing paper on drywall, dust, and dirt, can serve as a food source for mold. Mold colonies can go dormant under adverse conditions and revive when favorable conditions return. (National Center for Healthy Housing)
