How Fast Does Mold Grow around Brooklyn & New York City?

How Fast Can Mold Grow?

The time needed for mold to grow and spread is reliant on the types of mold, the material it is growing on, and the quantity of moisture the mold has, among other things. Under proper conditions which means in the best temperature and level of humidity, it only takes 24-48 hours for mold to germinate and grow.

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.

Within a few hours of coming into contact with a moist surface, mold spores begin to grow and spread into the substance, dispersing into the surrounding air and producing thousands of mold spores. These mold spores can then go to other moist surfaces, causing issues in new areas of your building.
