MOLD AND MOLD SPORES

Mold spores are the problem. Mold spores are tiny microscopic organisms that waft through the outdoor and indoor air continuously. When mold spores land on a damp spot indoors, they may begin growing a mold colony and eat and spread. As long as mold has a source of moisture and food, it will continue to grow. As mold grows and spreads, it produces fruiting bodies that produce more mold spores that may spread or be released into the air. As they spread through the air, they may land on other areas that have moisture and food to grow or they might land on skin, inhaled through the mouth or nose, or enter your body through the eyes and ears. This is generally how mold may affect certain individual's health. Over 250,000 mold spores can fit on the head of a pin.

LIVING MOLD

For mold to grow and become a health hazard to your family and pets and do damage to your home or apartment, it needs:

A. A source of moisture.
B. A food source such as drywall (made of paper), carpets (natural fibers), all wood and construction material (even dead and living plant life), leather, bricks, and concrete. Mold virtually grows everywhere outside and inside on leaves, dirt and plant life outside.
C. Temperatures: Mold will thrive and spread from 60-90° Fahrenheit. In cooler temperatures, mold will not die. It just lays dormant and is just as dangerous.
D. Humidity: Generally above 50° Fahrenheit.

HOW MOLD SPREADS

When mold spores enter your house and apartment, they land everywhere and on anything. Simply sitting on furniture or just walking on a carpet may stir up millions of mold spores, sending them through the air to be inhaled by us or start new colonies of mold. Remember what mold needs to survive and spread is a source of moisture, food and the right temperature and humidity. These tiny mold spores will enter wall cavities through tiny cracks or holes, or just air intake (HV/AC). When inside these wall cavities they already have a source of food, like wood, paper in drywall or any construction material. All it needs now is a source of moisture, such as leaks in roofs, leaks in shower fans, leaks in plumbing, or just water that may be splashed against the interior drywall. There are many ways for moisture to enter your wall cavities. When these two things meet, all that's left is the right temperature and humidity to start a new mold colony.

HEALTH AND MOLD

THREE MOLD GROUPS WHEN RELATED TO HEALTH:

1. PATHOGENIC: Can cause serious health effects in immune system of individuals, disease oriented.
2. ALLERGENIC: Can cause allergic or asthmatic symptoms, such as wheezing, runny noses, eye infections, or headaches usually not life-threatening.
3. TOXIC: Mycotoxins can cause serious health effects in anyone. Cancer, immune problems, skin disease, headaches, memory loss, chronic fatigue, nose and throat irritation, persistent cold-like symptoms, burning, itching or watery eyes, dizziness, nausea. Women who are pregnant could experience problems, even miscarriages. Toxic mold may even cause systemic rashes all over the body.

Be concerned about possible mold problems if one or more occupants are suffering from unexplained health problems.

Airborne mold spores may enter your body through inhaling from mouth and nose or through eyes and ears.

Non-airborne mold may enter you or your children's bodies by simply touching it. Some people may not be at risk with mold. However, some individuals may be at a higher risk, such as elderly, infants, children, asthmatic persons, pregnant women, and people with respiratory conditions.

RESPIRATORY CONDITIONS:

Not all molds produce mycotoxins all the time and mold does not have to be alive to be dangerous. Dead and dormant mold can be just as toxic. Even just smelling dead or dormant mold can make some people sick.

Understanding Mold

Mold growth occurs when conditions are favorable. These conditions include:

Moisture This can come from too much relative humidity of 50% or higher., a leaky pipe, or a water intrusion from a roof leak, an open window or from flooding due to a storm.
Right Temperature – Most mold species grow in temperatures ranging from 59º to 95º F (15º to 35° C), although there are molds which will grow at almost freezing and others which thrive at over 150º F. The average optimum for mold growth is usually stated to be in the vicinity of 86° F. Freezing mold does not kill mold spores or mold colonies—they become dormant waiting for warm temperatures and access to moisture to grow again.

Food – Mold will feed on wood, paper, cotton, cardboard, fabrics and leather. Drywall with its paper coating on both sides offers ideal food for mold spores. Mold can grow in dirt or dust if the conditions are right.

Time – Mold growth can occur in 24-48 hours, after a water damage incident, or it may take as long as 10 days, depending on the conditions.

Stagnant Air – Insufficient ventilation contributes to moisture buildup.

Frequently Asked Questions
 about Mold in Miami Homes

HOME DAMAGE

Mold eats whatever it grows on. It could eat you out of house and home. Do not ignore home maintenance and mold clues. Your home may become a mold victim when you ignore roof leaks, plumbing leaks, sewer line leaks, water stains on ceilings, the indoor smell of mold, visual mold growth, high humidity in your home (above 50 Degree Fahrenheit), or a wet and damp attic, basement or crawl spaces. Even when these problems are corrected does not mean that mold colonies have not already been started and are spreading. Do not assume there is no mold problem because of no visible mold growth. The worst infestation problems are often the ones you cannot see, like inside floors, ceilings, walls, basements, attics, crawl spaces, heating and cooling ducts.

Do you think a new home is mold-free? Forget it! In today's home construction, it is almost guaranteed.

HOPING THAT A NEW HOME IS MOLD FREE. Today's new homes often come with built-in mold infestation problems because:

(a) moldy building materials are received from the builder's supplier - today's timbers are not kiln-dried as in earlier times, and thus contain a high internal moisture content that makes mold growth possible in the timbers;
(b) the builder and its supervisors and employees fail to do quality control to inspect for, and, thus prevent moldy building materials from being used in the home's construction;
(c) the builder stores the inventory of building materials on the outside ground with no plastic sheeting to protect the building materials from rain (which thus supplies the necessary water to enable mold to grow in and on the materials);
(d) the construction crew fails to cover the entire home under construction with plastic sheeting at the end of each construction day to protect the building materials from rain (which thus supplies the necessary water to enable mold to grow in and on the materials). The roof and side walls need to be protected against rain until the entire roof, siding, windows, and doors are totally installed to seal out rain;
(e) the builder fails to inspect and test the home for mold growth while it is being construction and at the home's completion;
(f) use of modern building materials like chip wafer boards, drywall (plasterboard) and plywood, all of which molds love to eat; and
(g) failure to spray all wood-based construction materials on all surfaces with at least one spraying of the EPA-registered fungicide Coverage Plus and at least one spraying of the EPA-registered Tim-bor wood protectant.
