Substrate material and moisture are all that are needed for mold and fungi to grow. Mold spores are ubiquitous, so excess moisture in the crawlspace environment is usually the cause. Common excess moisture in the crawlspace is caused by: Water intrusion/flooding, plumbing leaks, poor ventilation, and high humidity. Addressing the source of moisture is the first step in the remediation process.

Under ideal moisture conditions, fungi growth and mold can begin to colonize within 24-48 hours. It is imperative to repair plumbing leaks, and water intrusion and stop high humidity problems right away. When fungi spores are exposed to water, they quickly grow – When these spores go airborne they may enter your house through an HVAC ductwork system, around plumbing pipe holes, doors, and windows.  Fungi / Mold spores are already present almost everywhere both indoors and outdoors.
