There are some studies that suggest that outdoor spores are perhaps as much as ten times higher in the summer times as the winter times.
We find that there’s a variation in the indoor but because the indoor temperature and humidity is more likely to be more stable than it is outdoor, we don’t see that much of a variation but we do see a difference between the mold growth in the wintertime from what you would see in the summertime. So if we see something near our guidelines in the wintertime, we know that’s the best that’s gonna get. And we know that as time goes on in the summertime, it’s gonna get a lot worse. So if it looks like it’s on the border of a problem in the wintertime, we say, “Hey, it’s really a problem.” In the summertime, if it’s very close to our guidelines and there’s no other factors to influence it, we know that that’s the worse it’s gonna get. And probably it’s gonna get better in the wintertime as the nature’s portion of what can affect it will affect it.
Now, that won’t make a difference in terms if you have water damage, if you have a leak from a dripping something, a plumbing leak in the wall or if a washer overflows or your toilet overflows or something like that. It’s not going to affect that because that’s strictly an indoor event and whether it’s got humidity outside or not, it’s not going to make a big difference.
