How Moisture Enters Buildings and Causes Mold

Moisture can enter a build either as a liquid or a gas (water vapor). In liquid form, it can come from bathrooms, kitchens, laundry facilities and by way of leaks and spills. Indoor pools, saunas, jaccuzis are notorious for sending tiny droplets into the air.

Water vapor can be caused by the evaporation from regular sources like bathrooms and kitchen, and even from the air exhaled by the people in the building. In addition, humid outdoor air can find a million ways to creep into a building. It infiltrates through the building materials, around windows and doors, through penetrations in the roof, every time the door is opened and closed, through the air filtration system, and through pipes and sewer lines (if improperly blocked) to name just a few.

Once inside a building, water vapor will condense on the coolest spot. This often explains why mold only grows in one particular spot on the wall or ceiling.

Sealing off the air leaks and controlling the humidity in your home or place of business is the first step in preventing mold and mildrew growth.
