Mold colonies form in areas where there is an excess of humidity. Whenever the humidity of an area reaches 45% or higher, there is a potential for mold colonization. Pockets of high humidity can be formed in a number of ways. The most obvious way that pockets of moisture are formed is through flooding, whether it is caused by burst pipes or outside sources, a flood can spell disaster for any home or business. If flood waters are not dried out by a professionally certified damage restoration team, normal processes of evaporation may cause airborne moisture to become trapped in areas that are difficult to reach and treat. When water gets between the walls, into crawlspaces and attics, or below the floorboards, those moist areas can linger on for a long time after the obviously affected areas are already dry. Another cause of moisture can be the temperature differential between the air outside and the climate-controlled air on the inside of the building. This differential can cause condensation to build up on the inside of your walls, again creating a humid environment that is conducive to mold colonization. Other common problems include small leaks, improperly sealed fixtures, cracks in the foundation, and appliance-related moisture. When so many different things can go wrong—both singly and in combination—it can be difficult to identify the problem right away, but wasting time trying to figure it out without professional assistance can be a mistake.
When mold infests your home or office, there can be a multitude of health issues that arise as a result. Children, the elderly, and pets are all particularly susceptible to the dangers of mold infestation, as are those with allergies and asthma. Symptoms of mold exposure include headaches, nausea, difficulty breathing, congestion, allergy and asthma attacks, itchy watery eyes, and flu-like symptoms. Some species of mold can even cause permanent health problems. The best way to deal with a mold problem is to avoid having one in the first place!

WHY DOES MOLD THRIVE?
Mold is everywhere and sometimes, they can’t be seen with the naked eye. But when it is encouraged to thrive, it will form, expand and become visible and annoying.
WHAT DOES MOLD NEED TO GROW?
***Any organic material to cling on like wood and fabrics.
***A water source.
***Lack of ventilation or air flow.
ARE ALL MOLD HARMFUL?
Different people have varied reactions to mold. Some have more sensitivity, especially those who have asthma or weak lungs. These all depends on the individual, but it is more healthy to be in a zero mold environment.
Some molds have a stronger degree of harm than others. But if mold spores have been distributed too widely in the premises, any type of mold could be dangerous. Toxic Black Mold or Stachybotrys is one type of mold that should not be present at all in any property. Very young kids and very old people could easily be sick from its presence.

WHERE DOES MOLD FORM?
Mold colonies are created in areas where there is an excess of humidity and standing water. When humidity reaches 45 percent or more, there is great potential for mold colonization. When an area has undergone flooding and there is standing water, pockets of moisture will be formed and that’s where the mold starts. The flooding could be through a weather disturbance or through busted pipes.
Floods could be bad for your home or business. The remaining water should be dried out by a professional damage restoration team. They will be going to the parts which are hard to reach and treat where there will be airborne moisture that have been trapped.
CHILDREN AND SENIORS ARE MOST PRONE TO MOLD PRESENCE
Your kids, the elderly and even your pets are easy prey for the dangers of mold infestation. Those with weak lungs, allergies and asthma are also most in danger. You will see manifestations of nausea, breathing difficulty, congestion, headaches, itchy and watery eyes, and symptoms leading to flu.
