While mold requires moisture to grow and thrive, it does not necessarily die without it.
Mold is highly resilient and can enter a dormant state when conditions become unfavorable – such as when moisture is no longer available. During this dormant state, mold will suspend its growth and metabolic activities.
Once moisture is reintroduced, such as through a water leak or increased humidity, the dormant mold spores can reactivate and resume their growth and colonization. Therefore, simply drying out a mold-infested area is not enough to prevent the return of mold. It’s just a temporary fix.
To effectively address mold issues, the underlying issue must be addressed. It is advisable to contact us to help identify the location and scope of the problem, as well as determine the best remediation plan.
