Mold in the Cold - Dartmouth 02740
As the weather outside begins to switch to much colder temperatures, our normal routine begins to change as well.
While mold is generally thought to grow during the warmer months, it is actually quite common for mold to grow in the winter season as well. Excessive indoor moisture can be caused by a number of issues: past water damage, plumbing issues, leaky roofs, high indoor humidity, and condensation are lurking concerns. Window condensation occurs when moisture in the warm air inside your home liquefies on the glass or other surfaces that are extremely cooler due to outdoor temperatures. High humidity contributes to this process because there is excess moisture in the air and is trapped indoors. It may seem minor but it’s important to dry the surfaces since mold feeds on it and can develop within 24 hours.
