WHAT IS MOLD?
Mold is a common fungus that can be found almost everywhere, inside or outside, year round. It is a decomposer of dead organic materials, and it often attaches to structures such as wood, plants, drywall, flooring and others. The tiny mold spores travel through the air, and once they take hold they start multiplying, mostly in surroundings like basements, bathrooms or crawlspaces, where the humidity is high.
WHERE DOES MOLD GROW?
Mold can be easily found on surfaces where there is damp stagnant air, it often prefers temperatures above 60 degrees but it can also grow in cold temperatures. Outdoors they can be found in shady, damp areas or places where leaves or other vegetation is decomposing. It is often found in the following places:
- Wallpaper and drywall.
- Ductwork and ceiling tiles.
- Carpet, drapes and furniture.
- Attics, basements and crawlspaces.
- Books and magazines.
- Inside refrigerators.
