Article Summary: 

This article discusses the impact of weather on mold growth. Mold can grow all year if the conditions are favorable, and temperature plays a significant role in mold growth. Mold thrives in temperatures between 60 and 86 degrees Fahrenheit, and it requires adequate water, temperature, nutrients, and oxygen to grow. Moisture is another essential factor that promotes mold growth in a home, and excess water vapor condenses on surfaces that are lower than the dew point temperature when the air cools below the dew point but the moisture content remains constant. The article also emphasizes that mold removal is a rigorous and controlled cleaning process that requires the use of specialized equipment. The best way to prevent mold growth is to keep humidity, heat, and moisture under control.
