Wood Staining, Rot & Surface Mold Explained by

MPI antimicrobial and MMR mold stain remover from provide solutions to mold problems on wood building materials.


Wood materials have long been a popular and economical choice for building homes and other types of buildings.  When properly maintained and protected from the elements, buildings made from wood can last for centuries. 
When damage is found on wood, termites and wood destroying insects are often blamed, but they are not the only culprits.  Wood also makes for an ideal food source for many types of mold.  Mold can quickly begin to grow on or in these materials when there is sufficient moisture and temperatures that are conducive for its growth. 
“Some types of mold are primarily found growing on the surface of wood,” stated Chris Heller with, a leading provider of mold remediation and prevention products.  “This is commonly the case when there has been a water damaging event in a building caused by a leaking pipe, elevated humidity or some type of flood. The mold may be easily visible and will often cause staining. When mold is growing on the surface of the wood it may become aerosolized and cause indoor air quality and health concerns for building occupants. This type of mold growth can often be removed with products such as MMR mold stain remover and the wood treated with MPI antimicrobial to eliminate existing growth and to prevent future mold growth.”
Other types of fungi not only use the wood as a food source, but also cause decay by breaking down the wood’s fibers and components. There are species that will attack living trees and others that will consume dead wood that has been used to construct a building.  These wood decay fungi are classified based on the type of decay they cause.  The most well known types include brown rot, white rot and soft rot.
