Mold is a big problem for builders and homeowners, and it can start before the wood is delivered the job site. Basically, mold – which is a type of fungus with thousands of different species – requires moisture to flourish.
Severe weather, floods, leaks and substandard building practices can lead to mold growth in homes. In some cases, lumber stored outside may carry mold when it's used in the home. So a home could have mold inside the walls with no water leaks in the finished building.
Modular and systems built homes are becoming a bigger part of the residential landscape. They can range from the traditional house trailer to a million dollar pre-fab home site with a breathtaking view.
When a homeowner is dissatisfied with the home it can often lead to expensive litigation and insurance claims. Builders want to deliver a product that delight their customers, so learning how to reduce the risk of mold and other problems can help builders do just that.
As the weather takes a turn for the worse, unprotected lumber on building sites is vulnerable to moisture-related problems.
