SERVPRO of Tracy knows Mold is everywhere.  That’s a fact of life all over the world. There is a wide range of mold varieties that can live in almost any location. But mold in small amounts poses little risk and is found in even the cleanest of homes and businesses. When mold colonies become too large, or when they are disturbed by either wind or movement, the mold spreads by sending off spores through the air to colonize other areas including behind a refrigerator or a washing machne.

Perhaps the most important fact to remember about mold is that it’s impossible to eradicate. You can’t get rid of all mold. However, mold remediation is quite possible even in the worst mold situations. 

The Color of the Mold Does Not Matter

In and around Tracy areas many homeowners and business owners want to learn more about mold damage. They want to know what mold means to their health, safety, and the future of their property. You’ll find that much of the information about mold that’s available online is about black mold. Just remember that any type of mold can create unhealthy and harmful conditions. The color of the mold does not matter.

Mold Is in Dry Locations, Too

Mold is found in dry locations—not just in moist ones. Of course, mold can grow more easily in moist, humid areas, but mold located in drier areas only needs to wait for moisture to find it before the mold can grow and send off spores.
