There are certain requirements that must be met for mold to grow within a home. For mold to grow there must be: a surface to grow on, darkness, warm temperatures, oxygen, moisture and time.
Every home usually contains each of those requirements except one: moisture. Moisture is the key that determines whether mold will grow in your home or not. This can be anything from flooding, a broken pipe or even just high humidity levels. Sources of moisture within a home typically related to mold growth are: humidity, condensation, leaking pipes, roof leaks, flooding, a damp basement, water buildup near the foundation and even wet clothes. Poor ventilation is also associated with mold growth.
