Does Mold Grow On...

Does Mold grow on WOOD?
Does Mold grow DRY WALL?
Does Mold grow CONCRETE?
Does Mold grow BRICK?

Mold spores on a surface need very little encouragement to grow and thrive. With the smallest amount of moisture, nutrients and suitable a temperature (10-25degC) the mold spores will germinate and mold will grow [though we’ve all seen mold grow in the fridge]. In winter when homes and buildings are heated, mold grows in cold, uninsulated areas such as basements, exterior windows and walls, including closets where surfaces are cold relative to indoor temperatures.
Mold derives food from its environment, living on dead organic matter that is typically unseen to the naked eye such as, paper, wood products, wallpaper adhesives, dead skin cells, and dust usually containing microscopic fibers.

Mold growth is more prevalent on porous materials such as dry wall and wood as there is more organic matter for feeding and sustaining life. Mold growth on concrete and brick typically grows more slowly but over time can cover large surface areas when a source of organic matter for feeding and living is still present. Humidity will boost likelihood of mold growth on concrete and brick when relative temperatures between the surface and the air are marginally different. Lack of sufficient air flow is a key factor in Mold growth.
