During the winter months, mold can become a problem inside many homes and business. The spores are brought in on people’s shoes and clothing or float in every time the door opens. Several factors contribute to active mold growth during the winter months.
In most areas of the northern hemisphere, winter means rain, snow and ice. All that moisture gets tracked in your front door on wet coats, boots and shoes. Doormats are particularly prone to developing mold problem since moisture in constantly being tracked in and the doormat is left to dry on its own, which it may not do if you live in a wet climate.
Winter brings many wet, rainy, snowy days, which can raise the humidity level in your home. Your furnace, while keeping the place warm, doesn’t get rid of the moisture. And mold loves humidity!
Finally, that furnace that keeps your home nice and toasty, with lovely steady temperatures, offers ideal growing conditions for mold. Warm and damp conditions, with some organic source to feed on, is all mold needs to get a foothold in your home, business, school or church.
