Is Mold Growth Common?

Yes. Despite the rapidly growing body of knowledge about mold, it remains the subject of a lot of confusion. Whether in the shower, on a stale piece of bread, or wet drywall, we have all encountered mold at one time or another.

According to the Center For Disease Control And Prevention (CDC), Mold is very common.  Found both outdoors and indoors, no one knows exactly how many mold species exist, but it is estimated to exceed over 300,000 strains. We live around mold all the time, but it becomes unsafe when it grows inside of the structures we occupy, especially when it grows to unhealthy proportions, as to affect our health and well-being.

  • The most common food source indoors is cellulose, which is found in wood and drywall
  • Since mold requires oxygen, it cannot grow underwater
  • Mold requires moisture to grow, which means buildings must be kept dry to prevent the growth
