What is mold you may ask yourself? First, it's important to know that mold is everywhere, indoors and outdoors. Mold belongs to a group of organisms called fungi. The body of molds is made of tiny filaments. Mold reproduces by means of tiny spores that float in the air due to their small size and weight. When a home suffers a water damage event, it's important to call in the professionals at SERVPRO of North Knoxville to mitigate the loss. If however, that's not possible, mold can spread throughout a home or business in as little as 48-72 hours.

Confusion and misunderstanding surround the topic of mold and mold remediation. Some restoration businesses even make claims to remove all mold from a building. This is a fallacy. Mold spores occur naturally almost everywhere, both indoors and outdoors. These microscopic spores float along in the air and can enter a home or business through windows and HVAC systems. Consider these facts:
- Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.
- Mold spores are microscopic and float along in the air and may enter your home through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or a pet.
- Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens and irritants.
- Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise, the mold may return.
- Mold often produces a strong, musty odor and can lead you to possible mold problem areas.
- Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.
