A mold colony is the big spot of mold that you see, growing. Mold spores
live on everything. They are usually microscopic, and you can think of
these as the mold “seeds.” Those spores can float around in the air,
surviving quite a while in their inactive state. They can also live on
surfaces like your walls and carpets. They stay around until they find the
ideal conditions to take root. When a mold spore takes root, it puts out
enzymes that break down the materials around it further, so that it can
consume them as fuel. Soon it is able to put out more spores and grow
exponentially, cell by cell, until the fungus is visible to the human eye.

environments, making out South Florida community especially prone to mold,

The thing about mold colonies is that it is best to beat them before they
even come. You can do this in a few ways. First of all, you can keep your
home or office’s humidity low by using a humidistat. Some air conditioning
units have humidistats built in, so you can control the humidity that way.

humidistat that can be controlled from afar so you can monitor the system.
In that way, you can beat mold before it beats you!
