Will mold grow when humidity rises above 50%

Several mold species have been associated with allergy-like symptoms, asthma, including Alternaria, Cladosporium, Aspergillus, and Penicillium.  Humidity levels above 55 percent can allow mold to grow, although levels of 70 percent are more ideal for mold growth and can cause mold damage. Keeping your house air-conditioned in warm climates can help keep the humidity levels safe from mold. But not if you set your air conditioning at 90 degrees.

If you a pipe leak or water damage or moisture that is creating an atmosphere for mold to grow then you may have an insurance claim you need to call Experienced Public Adjusters. (407) 212-8669
