The high humidity of the Savannah area is the perfect environment for the growth of mold. Anywhere there is moisture is a good environment for mold. A faulty humidifier of a central heating system or the coils of an air conditioner can give mold spores enough moisture to thrive.
Mold spores play an important part in the outdoor environment, but indoors these tiny particles can cause a wealth of problems. Spores can get inside on pets, clothes, or come in through vents. Heating or cooling systems blow the spores around until they come in contact with moisture, oxygen and a food source. The spores thrive and an infestation is underway in very little time.
