The Dreaded 4 Letter Word:Mold

12/1/2021 (Permalink)

Two dreaded word for homeowners:Mold and Mildew. Microbial growth can cause all kinds of issues and can be very expensive to mitigate. Many insurances companies have no mold coverage and some have extremely limited coverage for any kind of microbial activity. 

Microbial growth grows best in dark, damp, humid and warm conditions and spreads by reproducing spores. We live in Mississippi so we can check the box for all of the above! Some common indoor types are Cladosporium, Penicillium,Alternaria and Aspergillus. These kinds of microbial growth, and others, can cause health effects. 

Here are a few locations that are more likely to have mold issues in your area:

Antique shops





Construction Areas

Flower Shops
