Why Does Mold Keep Growing Back?

Have you tried to clean mold in your Winter Springs,FL, commercial building, only to see the spores come back a short time later? Mold growth increases in wet areas. If mold keeps returning, you probably haven’t addressed the moisture properly.
Mold spores appear naturally in the environment. They can enter a building in a variety of ways, including:

  • Doors
  • Windows
  • HVAC systems

It is impossible to remove mold from a building entirely. However, you need to keep the amount of mold at a normal level. Water damage to a property can cause an excess buildup of mold that must be addressed immediately.

Mold Thrives in Wet Conditions

Leaks, condensation and even high humidity can cause mold to grow more quickly. Mold and other fungi are made up of filaments called hyphae that release spores. These spores form new hyphae, causing the mold to spread. This process happens particularly quickly in wet and dark environments.

Mold Remediation

If you are dealing with continued mold growth, you likely have a water or humidity problem in your building. Since mold spores reproduce quickly in wet areas, you need experts who can find the source of the moisture quickly.
Mold remediation specialists know how to detect hidden mold and locate the cause of the problem. They can then remove any water and contain the mold so it doesn’t spread any further. They will also filter the air and use strong antifungal materials to eliminate excess mold colonies.
Once the mold infestation is removed, experts can clean affected items in your building so you won't have to throw them out. These pros can also provide extensive restoration services, if necessary.
If you see excess mold growth in your commercial building, don’t try to handle the problem yourself. Professionals will clean your building thoroughly and quickly. They will also reduce the chances of the mold coming back.
