Why mold, algae, and mildew grow quickly in the Richmond area
There are a variety of reasons why mold, algae, and mildew grow quickly in the Richmond area of Virginia. Some of these factors include:
- humidity and rainfall
- proximity to water/coastal regions
- it doesn’t always get cold enough (even in the winter) to kill mold and mildew
- poor air circulation/stagnant air
The above factors combined with commonly used building materials that are prone to mold, algae, and mildew growth. The Gloeocapsa Magma algae likes to feed on limestone, which is used as a common filler in fiberglass shingles. The shingles hold moisture and organic material, which allows the algae to create the black streaks and stains commonly found on roofs in Richmond.
