What is mold?
Molds are part of the natural environment. Outdoors,
molds play a part in nature by breaking down dead organic matter
such as fallen leaves and dead trees, but indoors, mold growth should
be avoided. Molds reproduce by means of tiny spores; the spores
are invisible to the naked eye and float through outdoor and indoor
air. Mold may begin growing indoors when mold spores land on surfaces
that are wet. There are many types of mold, and none of them will
grow without water or moisture.
Why is mold a problem?
Molds have the potential to cause health problems.
Molds produce allergens (substances that can cause allergic reactions),
irritants, and in some cases, potentially toxic substances (mycotoxins).
Inhaling or touching mold or mold spores may cause allergic reactions
in sensitive individuals.
How do I recognize mold?
There are several features that distinguish mold growth.
Mold often appears as black,green,or brown fuzzy or powdery patches
on surfaces in humid environments, though spores can also be gray,
purple, or red in color. Mildew is the common term used to describe
mold and its discoloration to unfinished wood.
