Question DetailsAsked on 1/4/2012

When mold spores no longer have access to water, and experience 'deep freeze' conditions, do they remain alive?

A house in the desert area of Southern Utah experienced a water leak two winters ago, and mold crept up the walls by about three feet. Likewise, the carpets likely have mold spores in them. The water leak was repaired, the house went through desert-like drying conditions, and also the old mold still appears on walls, and is likely in the now-very-dry carpets. Do any measures have to be taken other than vacuuming or otherwise removing the 'dead' spores from the walls and carpets?

There is an educational site out there that is there for you to look at. This guy has been in the industry for years. HE has a collection of articles for you to browse through. Very informative and the answer should be there under the mold sections of the reference material.
