What mold holds the most dominance?

3/11/2019 (Permalink)

It's a legitimate question. There's a huge variety of mold types, and some actually hold the capability to dominate any other mold within the environment it's growing in. 

Studies have actually shown that mold grows best when exposed to moisture for at least a week, or more. When its food source is low in nitrogen and high in cellulose, (organic materials) Black mold is happy… us and other molds, not so much.

Although different mold colonies will likely grow beforehand, once the black mold takes form, it will dominate the environment completely. This nightmarish fungi won't just go away on it's own either.  It can be dried up, and still remain alive and well. It’s true… Stachybotrys (black mold) and several other mold types can sit dormant for thousands of years until it gets wet, allowing new growth to take form.

For this reason, we strongly recommend calling in a professional remediation business that you can trust and make it seem "Like it never even happened." So if you are ever experiencing microbial growth in your residence, don't hesitate to call us at (503) 619-6198!
