After the Deluge, Mold

Not necessarily, but we couldn’t resist the title.

Mold, or any kind of microbial growth, is impressive. Even a little extra moisture, like the condensation on a shower door, or the high humidity we’ve all suffered through in places that lacked air-conditioning, can provide a good environment for mold if it (the moisture) sticks around long enough. “Long enough” is 24 to 48 hours.

When you call SERVPRO of Gold Coast/Lincoln Park/Lakeview to your home after a disaster has caused water damage, we hope to prevent mold from colonizing any part of your home. Depending on when you call, however, it may be too late. Sometimes, homeowners don’t even know there has been water damage until they smell the musty aroma of an active mold colony.

How mold is both impressive and terrifying:

  • As above, needs only a little extra moisture to start growing
  • The spores can survive for hundreds of years without water, food, or oxygen
  • Spores can even survive in outer space
  • Mold eats pet and human skin cells, hair, and just about anything else edible to any life form
  • It is sometimes useful to humans (penicillin anyone? Blue cheese?)
  • It’s always useful outdoors (breaks down waste back to dirt)
  • Mold can be white, tan, pink, orange, red, blue, purple, green, yellow, brown, or black

Trivia Time

The Committee for “Will This Be on the Test” Knowledge looked for song titles or lyrics about mold, but they found only “broke the mold” references, so they looked for “fungus” instead.
