What is Mold?

Mold is a type of fungi. Mold reproduces by forming spores that are able to travel through the air. These spores travel through the air until they reach a surface where there is moisture, allowing them to grow. If you are familiar with mildew, this is a type of mold.

Living with Mold

Mold can be dangerous to your health, especially to infants and the elderly. Water damage, when handled improperly, can cause your home to grow mold. Unchecked mold can lead to reduced indoor air quality and an unsafe environment. Moisture and mold tend to be a package deal. To get rid of the mold, you also have to deal with the moisture problem since mold thrives in damp, warm, and humid environments. The longer you wait to rid your home of the moisture and mold, the more intense the problem will become. 

Mold can cause allergens, irritants, mycotoxins, sneezing, breathing problems, and long-term diseases. Mold is especially harmful to those with asthma. It can cause someone to have an asthma attack, even if they aren’t allergic. If you are suspecting that you may have mold, typically a musty odor or appearance of mold are indicators.
