Mold Growth in Central Alabama



​How Fast Does Mold Grow in Alabama?

After any kind of water leak, mold growth is common. Usually, it takes 24 hours to 48 hours for mold to grow, according to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), when all the required conditions are met.

The time required in each particular case depends on the type of surfaces and materials involved, the amount of moisture, and temperature. Mold generally grows faster on softer surfaces in darker, warmer (70 degrees or more), and more humid indoor environments.

Mold spores spread from one area to another also with time. These microorganisms can quickly fill the air and spread throughout your home, affecting more and more areas and endangering your health with every passing hour.

On surfaces, mold spores that start to colonize within 24 hours become visible in about 18 to 21 days of the flooding. But that happens if nothing has been done to dry the water and restore the affected surfaces. For these reasons, it’s essential to deal with water and moisture issues as soon as you have a flooding incident.
