Do All Houses Have Mold?

Hi, I’m Jeremy with SafeAir Certified Mold Inspection and I am a Certified Microbial Consultant. You can find me on the web at www.safeairmoldtesting.com or you can also call me at 404-695-0673.

A question I am often asked is: Do most houses have mold?

There is some mold in every home. Mold will grow in just a few days anywhere there is excess moisture or humidity above above 55%. 

Mold is most common on materials such as wet tile, tubs, and toilets in living areas. Perhaps there is a small drip under the sink. 

There is also some mold in all unfinished basements, crawlspaces, and attics. 

The industry standard is that there is no visible mold present in unfinished spaces. 

If you do have visible mold growing in you unfinished basement, crawlspace, or attic, it is an indication there is a lot more non-visible mold you can’t see on other building material and the air is contaminated. 

Visible mold in unfinished spaces indicates a need for a mold remediation.

I recommend that occupants are able to occupy the indoor space without having adverse health related problems associated with indoor type mold exposure. 

Having an air sample collected, by a professional mold inspector, can be useful in knowing what you are breathing and can indicate whether there is a mold problem that needs to be addressed. 

I recommend there be fewer than 1,000 allergenic type mold spores, per cubic meter of air, for indoor locations that are serviced by an HVAC system.

Typically, the molds that are in the average home do not contaminate the air to a level that is above our recommended guidelines or is a problem for the vast majority of people. 

If you want to know if the mold in your home is contaminating the air or just want to know what you are breathing, call SafeAir Certified Mold Inspection and have an indoor air sample collected by a professional mold inspector
