Mold Is Alive

1/23/2019 (Permalink)

Molds are microscopic organismsfound virtually everywhere indoors and outdoors. Mold is alive but it is neither a plant nor an organism. Mold is a type of fungus. 

Fungal growth requires oxygen, adequate temperature, nutrients and water to survive and grow. 

Mold can damage your home as well as compromise your health. 

Some places where mold can grow in your home are 



-Wood products





-ceiling tiles

-household dust




Mold grows in cool, dry, dark areas. Mold will start to grow on these damp areas within 48 hours, so it is very important to immediately call SERVPRO of Frankfort if you suspect water damage in your home. 

SERVPRO of Morris/Ottawa is here for you 24 hours a day to help you prevent mold growth due to water emergencies. If you should have mold our trained professionals can remediate and mitigate that as well.
