What is mold?

Mold is quite dangerous and can grow in many different places. Mold is generally a combination of different types of fungi that grow in filaments and reproduce by creating tiny spores that sprout and fly off. These sprouts cannot be seen by the naked eye.

Mold lives in warm, humid, damp places and tends to appear in places with poor ventilation and water leaks the most. Mold can attach itself to furniture, pets, books, papers, carpets and all sorts of things. It can even be circulated through your air system. Water damaged buildings are the best playground for mold. This is especially not good seeing as at least half of the buildings we live in are water damaged.

This causes mold illness to the people who are more prone to it and seeing as most people spend more time inside than they do outside we need to know how to reduce the harmful effects of mold. Mold is nothing to joke about if you think you may be experiencing some sort of mold exposure do something about it immediately. Test the presence of mold in your home.
