When the mold spore count inside your home becomes elevated, the microscopic spores settle on surfaces throughout the home, and if they find an area where a moisture problem has gone unchecked, mold and mildew will begin to grow, and the spores will multiply quickly. This situation often goes unnoticed and becomes a destructive issue in the home. Mold is a plant-like organism that doesn't need photosynthesis to survive. Even though it doesn't need sunlight, mold does require some form of moisture, so you will find it anywhere that moisture is present for an extended period.
Mold has a myriad of health symptoms attached to it, so finding and removing mold growth is important in maintaining the indoor air quality and health of your family. Most of the mold health symptoms have other potential causes, and they are typically allergy-like symptoms, so it is hard to determine for sure if what you're experiencing is from mold growth in your home. If you don't have visible mold growth, but you have a sudden onset of allergy-like symptoms, and you recently suffered some form of water damage or moisture problem, you should consider scheduling a mold inspection or mold testing appointment to determine if you have a mold problem.
