Mold is a fungus whose spores are ubiquitous in the air. For these spores to develop, several conditions must be met, the first and most important being the moisture.
Mold grows only on humid surfaces. It turns out that if we remove moisture (regardless of its nature!) from a structure or a wall, we will get rid of mold.
Condensation occurs due to daily activity in an indoor space (human breathing, cooking, drying clothes, etc.) when the possibility of ventilation is greatly reduced (especially in winter). When the relative humidity of the air reaches a certain level, the dew point will be reached and the air vapor will be deposited on cold surfaces.
Double-glazed windows and non-insulated walls dramatically increase the chances of condensation on cold surfaces, which leads to the appearance of moisture and mold.
The efficiency of mold remediation depends, first and foremost, on the correct diagnosis of the moisture source (water infiltrations, condensation etc.) which is to be eradicated. It would also be ideal for these works to be done early on, as mold can spread very quickly, making it increasingly difficult to remove completely. It can also develop in places out of sight – under large pieces of furniture, for example, or even under your hardwood floor.
