Mold Growth is the result of Moisture

Homeowners and homebuyers in Naples and Bonita Springs should understand that moisture intrusions can cause mold growth in a home.  Roof leaks and leaks around windows are common in our area.  Florida sun can take its toll on shingle roof as well as the underlayment of tile roofs.  Poor flashing even on newer homes is a common source of water intrusion which can cause mold growth. Homeowners in Naples should have their roofs checked by a licensed roof professional at least every couple of years.

High levels of humidity inside a Naples home can also be the source for mold growth. It is surprising how often homeowners leave the HVAC system on when they have the doors and windows open.  The AC tries to cool the whole outdoors causing the supply grills to sweat, hot air and cold air mix. This moisture is absorbed by the furniture, drapes and carpet, remember "food and water" and mold growth can occur.  Sometimes the AC handle will actually "freeze up", a block of ice will form on the evaporator coils.  If you are going to have your doors and windows open for an extended time TURN THE AC OFF.  We see too many homes in Naples and Bonita Springs every year with a "humidity bloom" that could have easily been prevented using a little common sense.

Plumbing leaks are another source for mold growth, can cause a high humidity problem or active growth in the area of the leak.
