There are three critical temperatures for mold: the temperature below which no mold growth occurs, the temperature above which no mold growth occurs, and the temperature at which most rapid mold growth takes place. Most mold species grow in temperatures ranging from 59º to 95º F (15º to 35° C), although there are molds which will grow at almost freezing and others which thrive at over 150º F. The average optimum for mold growth is usually stated to be in the vicinity of 86° F. Freezing mold does not kill mold spores or mold colonies---they become dormant waiting for warm temperatures and access to moisture to grow again.

Maintaining your home and protecting your family from avoidable disease are two good reasons to assess the potential impact of mold on your home. Many families wait until mold contamination is very high before acting to correct this problem. In most cases, an ounce of prevention can avoid untold expense left in the wake of unattended mold infestation.

If mold is found in your home, there are two potential paths of remediation. The degree of contamination will determine which path is recommended. The remediation process can be either invasive or non-invasive. Non-invasive remediation is generally less involved, requiring minimal reconstruction and repairs following the process. Therefore, it is less expensive.

This remediation process consists of removing and discarding porous building materials that cannot be decontaminated through non-invasive means. Moisture infiltration typically causes moisture to penetrate walls and generate mold inside wall cavities. Generally, this is caused by moisture entering your home's exterior envelope through compromised roofing or siding or through an interior water source, such as piping or faucets. Seepage, flooding and leaks create a tremendous mess for the homeowner. These problems result in severe material damage that many times requires some level of invasive remediation. From a cost perspective, the labor of invasive remediation is slightly more expensive, but what truly drives up the cost of this remediation is the reconstruction and repair necessary following the removal of mold damaged building materials.
