More about mold!

Ceilings with high humidity rooms pose an increased risk for microbial growth.

Have you ever wondered how long it would take a full room to grow in mold, considering it had optimal temperature and humidity? 

Microbial growth (mold), is nothing to delay if it's seen in your home. It only takes 24-48 hours to generate and grow under ideal conditions. Typically, the spores begin to colonize in 3 to 12 days and become visible to the eye in about 18-21 days. 

The concern for many is that mold will grow without any notice until it's too late. Once mold can be identified, it goes on to killing the bacteria using specialized solutions and equipment, then removing it permanently. There's a misconception that it can be simply cleaned and gone. It gets more complex than that. Give SERVPRO of Cedar Mill / Oak Hills a call if you need to have mold identification and remediation in your home!
