What is Mold?
We have all encountered mold at one time or another. There are many different species of mold, but all molds share some common characteristics.
- Mold thrives in moist and humid environments
- Mold requires an organic food source
- Molds are spread by microscopic airborne particles called "spores".
Molds and their spores are present everywhere in our outdoor environments. However, indoor mold growth can be a problem. Mold spreads rapidly and produces an unpleasant odor. If not dealt with and removed, mold can cause significant structural damage. Substantial amounts of mold indoors can also create indoor air quality concerns for its occupants.
