How Fast Does Mold Grow in Boston & Providence?

Leaks, floods and overflows can lead to water damage at residential and commercial properties. Inadequate cleanup and drying leaves open the possibility of mold growth, which can contaminate an area or surface quickly if the right conditions exist.

Persistently dark, damp spaces, hidden areas near plumbing leaks, unseen water damage behind cabinets, appliances or furniture, humid indoor conditions, or previous mold that wasn't fully removed are all factors in how fast mold can grow or spread. Regardless of the scope of your mold growth, it's important to seek professional mold remediation to prevent further or future mold growth.

First Response Stops Fast Mold Growth

Choose First Response Restoration for thorough, professional mold remediation after water damage. How fast mold grows is affected by factors that include:

  • Type of mold, material or surface where it grows, moisture present, and environmental factors, such as humidity levels
  • If a moisture source comes in contact with mold spores or surface contamination, it can begin to grow and spread in as little as 24 hours. Mold spores need between 3 and 11 days to germinate and spread. Mold becomes visible with 18–20 days.
  • As moisture lingers and saturates a porous surfaces such as wood, drywall, insulation, etc., mold can grow and spread quickly.
  • Air that's heavily contaminated with mold spores can spread mold to surfaces and begin further growth within a matter of hours. Persistent dampness only worsens the problem, and your indoor air can become a serious hazard for breathing issues, allergies, and surface damage or discoloration.
