Greenish-black patches on walls and ceilings likely indicate mould growth. This fungus thrives in damp conditions and spreads rapidly across wet surfaces in homes, offices, and buildings. Controlling mould requires keeping affected areas dry and managing moisture.

Kitchens, bathrooms, basements and other frequently wet spots provide optimal mould breeding grounds. Ceilings, tiles, wood, carpets and more can also grow mould if left damp. Understanding what causes mould helps tackle an infestation.

Why Do Moulds Occur?

Mold thrives on the organic materials present in your home when excess moisture is available. Damp conditions allow mold spores to germinate and spread rapidly, causing considerable property damage. Some common factors that contribute to mold growth include:

  • Leaky ceilings – This may occur due to flooding or rainy situation.
  • Non-stop Humidity– This is normally caused by the humid condition of when the steam is inside it. It is considered natural. 
  • Drainage of Water of Flood– This is the drainage that existed before and is still moisture-laden or a bit soggy even today.
  • Consistent Moisture Source – These are the moist areas that involve poor drainage, leaky pipe causing water to fall and collect on a single point or spot.
  • Inappropriate Drainage Systems – This can be experienced especially with the Air conditioners’ outdoor units. The leakage becomes the cause of mould growth.

Besides a few of the causes of mould growth mentioned above, there are some microclimatic conditions and seasons that are linked to mould. Molds are thought to grow more quickly during the summer and spring seasons.
