    It has to do with water and moisture and I believe circulation/ventilation of the air. Check for leakage and cracks . or water from a sweating pipes falling onto the floor . It's not the best type of environmental because molds, spores and moss will quickly develop. .
    Depending on where it's found, and what is found , bleach kills plenty of germs. And there are many space and crack sealants and foams.

    Good luck.

    Bad insulation is probably the most common and worst cause. This can be helped by having your house re-insulated. Leaks are another, but they're more obvious...

    I get a little bit of mould around (only) my bedroom windows in the winter if I don't leave them open a small crack throughout. This is due to condensation...
