Organic matter, such as fallen leaves and dead trees, may very well be infested with mold. Inside however, mold growth should be avoided completely. Mold reproduces by means of tiny spores; the spores are invisible to the naked eye and can float through the air outside, to make their way into a property.
Mold may begin growing indoors when mold spores land on surfaces inside a property that are wet. There are many types of mold, and none of them can possibly grow without water or moisture. That’s why water damage is such a big problem.
Mold will grow on any number of materials. It can grow on wood, wallpaper, paints, carpet, sheet rock and insulation. When excess moisture or water builds up in your property, (say from a leak, or flooding) conditions become perfect for mold growth.
Three key elements are needed for mold to exist. A food source, the proper temperature, and, as previously mentioned, moisture. If these three exist together then it’s inevitable that mold will grow.
When you first catch sight of mold in your home, you may be absolutely repulsed by the look of the green or black fuzzy fungus. It can grow rampant over walls, ceilings or even on the bathroom tiles. Mold spores really can make your skin crawl.
Beyond the 'ick-factor' of mold, however, is a much more serious threat; one that affects the health of you and your family. Mold health problems can be experienced well before you actually even find evidence of mold in your home. Since mold spores can be airborne, you could be breathing in these toxic spores for months before you understand what's truly happening.
