In the early months of winter, the wetness and dampness of the weather are ideal for mold to grow and spread. For homeowners and building owners, mold prevention in winter months can be the difference between a clean, healthy environment and a full-blown mold infiltration.

Not all molds are dangerous, and as a natural phenomena mold is found both indoors and out. If mold is allowed to spread and produce spores, however, there could be risk to health (especially for those who are vulnerable). It’s clearly a good reason for mold prevention in winter months. 

What’s important with all types of mold is proper removal. For a start, mold prevention in winter months is the optimum approach. But when it comes to cleanup, a simple cleaning will not do the job completely. Even dried up mold can create spores that are eventually released into the air.

Today, even with the availability of DIY approaches to mold removal, professional remediation is still the best option for eliminating mold. Professionals do it right the first time, and make sure that there is no recurrence. With mold, regardless of the scope, it’s better not to take chances.

Temperatures when mold stops growing
Warm and humid conditions are ideal for mold. Most mold types need a temperature of 70º Fahrenheit (20º Celsius) to flourish. Mold doesn’t do well in a cold environment.

Temperatures also affect mold growth
Even in winter, when a building is heated and humidified, mold can grow in and around windows and walls. Un-insulated spaces and exterior walls often provide a growing space.

Mold growth in freezing temperatures
Extreme cold and freezing temperatures can actually deactivate spores but they don’t die. When the temperature rises after a cold spell, mold spores can be reactivated and grow.

Stopping mold growth from spreading
In a home or office space, lower levels of humidity will ensure an environment where can’t begin to grow. Mold will not generally grow in low humidity and/or low temperatures.

Mold prevention in winter months is a good start

Preventing mold from growing is about keeping humidity levels controlled, indoor temperatures lowered, and proper ventilation throughout. Water damage and unexpected flooding is another story completely, and here, professional remediation is a must. Anything short has the potential for big problems to evolve going forward. With any mold infiltration, quick action is required and proper cleanup is essential so that mold and spores do not return.

Thanks for the professional work. We were going to deal with the mold removal ourselves and realized it was a bad idea. Your crew really knows what they are doing. Our place is spotless – and they even gave us some good household tips. I have no problem in recommending Matrix.


Robert Lee

Thank you for coming to the rescue. I didn’t quite know how dangerous asbestos could be, but I knew it had to be removed completely and properly. Thanks for the professional touch – I feel much better now that the house is clean and safe. I hope I never have to use this service again.

What makes asbestos harmful to health are its toxic fibrous crystals. Due to normal wear and tear, and abrasion of materials that contain asbestos, microscopic fibers are released into the air, causing serious lung issues when inhaled.
