How Fast Does Mold Grow?

Home > Mold Remediation > How Fast Does Mold Grow?

Mold growth can occur in your house when there is any amount of moisture present. In ideal temperature and humidity conditions, fungi can germinate and grow within 24 to 48 hours, and spread even faster. To prevent mold infestation after water damage, it is crucial to dry the affected area within the first 48 hours of the water intrusion.

Mold Homes From Water Damage

Water intrusions into the house such as flooding, burst pipe or leaky roof compromise the integrity of the building, destroys electronics and appliances and ruins furniture, carpeting, clothing, and other household items.

On top of that, it creates welcome conditions for mold growth. This increases the damage and makes the restoration process longer, harder, and costlier.

How Mold Grows & Spreads Inside The House

Mold spores exist everywhere in the environment and mold starts developing when they come in contact with organic “food” and moisture. Our houses contain plenty of porous organic materials like drywall, insulation, paint, and paper products. When these materials are exposed to a few inches of water or high humidity, mold begins to grow, germinate, and spread.

It only takes a few hours for molds to spread, 24 to 48 hours to grow and germinate, 3 to 12 days to colonize, and about 18 to 21 days to become visible.

     Preventing Mold Growth in Your Home

    To stop mold from growing in your home, it is important to keep it dry and eliminate moisture before mold can thrive.

    However, effectively drying your home can be challenging since water can penetrate various materials and seep into walls, floors, and ceilings, often remaining hidden until it’s too late.

    That’s why the most effective way to prevent mold infestation after water damage is to hire experienced professionals who can dry your property within the first 48 hours of water intrusion.
