Where Does Mold Grow?

Mold on drywall paper and studs after a water damage in Carthage, NY.

Mold grows on organic matter. Anything that is organic in your Carthage, NY, home has the possibility of having mold growth when it gets wet.

Where does mold grow?

  • Dry Wall Paper
  • Wood floors
  • Wooden Windowsills
  • Window frames
  • Books
  • Old paper brochures, menus, etc.
  • Curtains
  • Carpeting
  • Furniture upholstery
  • Wooden furniture

Keeping these items dry after a water damage is critical to keep mold spores from beginning their growth cycle. The spores are already in your home as "settled spores" but they are harmless in this state. The spores need time, organic material, and warm temperatures to begin growing. Unfortunately, your home has everything mold needs to grow and it can become a big problem in just 48 hours.

SERVPRO of Jefferson County has the training and certifications to clean up your home after mold damage.
