Mold is one of the oldest organisms on Earth. It is a spore-producing organism that often feeds on organic matter. Did you know that mold can destroy (decay) organic materials, such as grass, leaves, and wood, contributing to soil enrichment? However, the same mold growth and decay process can cause damage to your Saint Augustine home or business.
Mold grows and feeds on wood products, cardboards, wallpapers, carpets, drywall, and various other organic materials. As common building materials can sustain mold, note that growth in many indoor environments is usually related to water and indoor moisture. Mold can also grow on your walls, floors, and other surfaces that have undergone water damage, are experiencing a moisture control problem, or have not been allowed to dry completely.
