How Fast Does Mold Grow?

An interior flood from leaky appliances, burst water pipes, or any other water disaster can cause structural damages to your home. The excess water can destroy electronics and appliances, ruin furniture, carpeting, clothing, and other household items. To add to these problems, water intrusion will give birth to mold and bacteria in less than 24 to 42 hours, this does not only increase the extent of damages to your property but makes the restoration procedure lengthy and costlier.

Therefore, it is wise to extract standing water, dry, and dehumidify your property as soon as possible. Even if there hasn’t been a flood or visible water leaks, inspect your appliances once in a while for underlying leaks.

What Do Studies Say?

According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), mold typically takes 24 to 48 hours to grow. Mold spores begin to colonize in 3 to 12 days becoming visible in about 18-21 days. The time, however, can vary depending on the type of surface and materials, amount of moisture, and temperature. If the area is moist and dark without proper air circulation, mold can grow even faster. Moreover, mold spores will also spread with time and contaminate the air, hence, increasing health hazards.
