As a homeowner, you don't want to hear that there is black mold in your living space. The thought of mold growth may terrify you. It's true that fungus can be a problem in Beverly/ Cape Ann, but the spores themselves really aren't that scary, if you talk to any residential mold professional, you'll learn a few important things about this growth. 


It is everywhere, mold already exists in your home. This doesn't mean you need to call in a remediation team right now, but it does mean that the spores naturally occur both indoors and outdoors. You can never have a mold free house because the spores are always around.


It requires water. While the spores may be everywhere, mold cannot thrive in every location; water is a key ingredient for mold survival. If you have been dealing with a moisture problem in your house, or even just high humidity, you may be inviting colonies of mold. 


It can travel easily. Part of the reason spores can be everywhere is because they travel through water, in the air and on humans and animals. You may introduce mold to your home without realizing that a few spores caught a ride on your shoe.


It may have a smell. Some molds, particularly black mold, are associated with a musty odor. This aroma may be what clues you in to your growth. However, this fungus can exist without a tell-tale smell.


It needs to be dealt with quickly because mold is everywhere and can be spread easily, SERVPRO of Beverly/ Cape Ann should be called in right away if you suspect the growth in your home or business.
