How Fast Does Mold Grow?

Molds are one of the most common results of water damage that might occur to your belongings. If there is excessive moisture and the temperature is optimal, molds start germinating and growing in 24 to 48 hours. It takes 3-12 days for the spores to start colonizing. Although, they start appearing in front of your eyes in 18-21 days.

Different types of molds take different amounts of time to fully grow. But mostly the longer they are present, the worse the situation will get.

The best course of action is to deal with the water damage as soon as possible to prevent potential mold growth. Since molds thrive in moist areas, mitigating the water damage will disrupt their living conditions. You have a short window after water damage to take action before risking mold damage to your property.

Impacts Mold Have on Your Family & Property

Despite being tiny particles flowing in the air, they are capable of causing widespread damage across your property. This not only harms your property but your family too.

While germinating, molds release thousands of spores in the air that look for the next moist area to infest. Molds then grow wherever these spores land. As the spores are airborne, they are able to spread quite rapidly through your home. However, this also means your family will be inhaling those spores as well!
