Some Mold Facts

1/19/2018 (Permalink)

This article is for information purposes only. We have found a good article with some facts about mold or mildew. I hope that you enjoy the info as we did.


Molds are various types of fungi (singular = fungus) that grow in filaments and reproduce by forming spores that can travel through the air. The term mildew is sometimes used to refer to some kinds of mold, particularly mold in the home with a white or grayish color or mold growing in shower stalls and bathrooms. Mold may grow indoors or outdoors and thrives in damp, warm, and humid environments. Mold can be found in essentially any environment or season.

Molds reproduce by forming tiny spores that are not visible to the naked eye. Mold spores are very hardy and can survive under conditions in which mold cannot grow, such as in dry and harsh environments. These spores travel through outdoor and indoor air. When the mold spores in the air land on a surface where moisture is present, mold can then start to grow.

For our dry area in Reno/Sparks we still can have mold. If you do believe you have mold please don't forget to call SERVPRO of Reno Southwest. We will make it "Like it never even happened."
