When excess moisture is in your Des Moines, IA home from high levels of indoor humidity or water damage, mold growth can occur. The longer an area experiences high levels of moisture, the more likely it is that mold will grow causing mold damage. Generally, mold spores are everywhere, and are a natural part of everyday life. Mold damage can become a serious threat if not handled in a timely manner. It’s crucial to begin the mold cleanup and removal process as soon as possible to prevent further spreading.
Mold requires only a warm environment of about 60-80 degrees F, organic material to feed on, and moisture to thrive. Since there’s not much you can do about temperature or organic materials, the one thing you can control is moisture and humidity. Mold can begin to grow 24-48 hours after an area is wet, and is one of the reasons it is so important to have water damage cleaned up and dried as soon as possible.

Run for the hills when you see black mold because this one is the bad one. We don’t determine a flower type just by its color, nor do we look at mold and determine what it is by color.
Everyone gets sick from all molds. Some people are more susceptible to mold related sicknesses. Some factors are age as well as length of time exposed to mold. Different immune diseases affect this as well.
Bleach kills mold. This myth is extremely harmful because it puts people’s health at risk. Bleach bleaches mold, it will not kill all the mold. Some mold will die for sure, but not enough to risk your health. Not long ago, a customer of ours ended up in the hospital because of the fumes from bleach that he used to try and eliminate mold.
