How Long Does Mold Take to Start Growing?


Mold can grow between 24 and 48 hours after water is left on a surface. Depending on whether the situations continue to be favorable for mold growth, this might easily turn into a more serious mold issue within a few weeks. In hard surfaces, mold spores appear within 14 to 21 days.

In hidden surfaces, attic, and wet and warm areas it only takes 24 hours for the mold spores to become visible. However, on open surfaces, it can take 30 days or more for the mold spores to appear.
