Mold Loves Cold Weather Because your Warm Home and Melting Snow makes your Home a Great Place for Mold to Grow.

Mold doesn’t fly south for the winter or leave your home for a winter residence. Actually, winter time can be conducive to new mold growth inside many homes, schools, and commercial buildings. People are likely to keep windows tightly closed to keep the warm air inside and cold air outside.

Holding all your warm air inside also holds in all the moisture. This can lead to high indoor humidity levels and an ideal environment for winter mold growth. The mold removal NJ experts at Stern Mold are happy to conduct a free inspection and provide advice on preventing future mold problems.

Likely areas for winter mold growth

Roof ice dams form along the edge of the roof and prevent melting ice and snow from properly draining off the roof and away from your home. The water held back by the ice dam can leak into your attic, ceiling, walls, and insulation. Once inside, the moisture combines with a food source of wood or drywall and the warm indoor air to become a thriving mold colony.

If you have one room that stays warmer than other areas of the house, it likely has higher humidity and could develop spots of mold on the drywall or in hidden areas behind dressers, chairs, or in the closet behind clothes.
