How Fast Does Mold Grow around Brooklyn & New York?

Mold is a naturally occurring substance that may be present just about anywhere; nevertheless, this does not make it harmless and does not stop it from causing serious problems for people and their belongings. Mold is caused by water damage, and since it may spread rapidly after flooding, it complicates efforts to restore the damage.

Mold growth won’t just cause damage to your building’s structural integrity, but it can also cause severe health issues for anyone exposed to it. So, it is highly recommended to contact a professional mold inspection company as soon as possible if you think that your property has mold contamination and that is where Superior Restoration & Remodeling comes in.

How Fast Can Mold Grow?

The amount of time it takes for mold to grow and spread depends on a number of factors, including the type of mold, the substrate it's growing on, and the humidity level. Mold can begin to develop and spread in as little as 24 to 48 hours if the right circumstances (i.e., temperature and humidity) are present.

Generally, the spores start to colonize in 3-12 days and become observable in around 18-21 days. Generally, the longer moisture is present, the higher the risk for mold to grow and spread.

Mold spores can begin to grow and spread into a substance within a matter of hours after making contact with moisture, eventually dispersing into the air and producing thousands of mold spores. It's possible for these mold spores to disperse and spread to other damp areas of your building.
