Moisture. Moderate temperatures. A food source. Oxygen.
That's all mold needs to begin growing inside your home or business.
When a building suffers water damage, mold can quickly grow and spread within 48 to 72 hours. In Middle Georgia, we also regularly experience the weather and humidity needed to produce mold (or microbial growth, as we like to call it). When considering whether you have mold in your home, you'll want the seasoned professionals at SERVPRO of Macon to help identify any possible mold growth and create a plan of action to remediate the problem. Mold can produce allergens and irritants that can cause a range of problems, so don't delay in calling us if you suspect you have mold.

Some restoration companies advertise “mold removal” and may even guarantee to remove all mold. This is a fallacy because removing all mold from a house or business is impossible; microscopic mold spores exist almost everywhere, both indoors and outdoors. Here are the facts:
- Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.
- Mold spores are microscopic and float along in the air and may enter your home through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or a pet.
- Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens and irritants.
- Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise, the mold may return.
- Mold often produces a strong, musty odor and can lead you to possible mold problem areas.
- Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.
