Mold is a naturally occurring fungus found both indoors and outdoors. They are microscopic organisms that break down dead materials and recycle nutrients back into the environment. Its food sources are many, including building materials such as wood, drywall, and sheetrock. In order to reproduce, molds produce spores, which spread through air, water, or by insects. These spores act like seeds and can form new mold growth any time the conditions are right.
Potential Health Effects of Indoor Mold:
