Mold is a type of fungus, and it can be prevalent both indoors and outdoors. It can grow in numerous areas and on many different kinds of surfaces. Mildew is a common mold known by many people, as any area prone to moisture can harbor mold. Mold reproduces by the production and release of spores that travel through the air; if your home or business is contaminated, there is a good chance that you are breathing in the unseen spores.

You can’t always see the mold in your home, and this is why it is essential to act quickly when it is seen. Mold can grow on walls, in air vents, or on the edges of flooring but it is not always visible. Sometimes even with visible mold, you might not realize it is even there. Mold can look like white threads or like black and green-gray spots or clusters. Mold hiding behind wallpaper can even look pink, orange or purple. Many times a home or business owner does not recognize what they are looking at when they see mold growth. If small amounts of mold are seen it is very important to act quickly to remove all of the mold, visible or invisible. If there is visible mold it is very likely there is a larger mold colony growing out of sight.

Mold is dangerous. It is associated with many different health issues, symptoms, and illnesses. Mold in your home can be very serious for elderly people with respiratory problems and it can also be very harmful to children and babies with developing lungs.

Usually symptoms decrease once a person is no longer around the mold, however immune system problems can linger. If your symptoms increase in severity when in certain buildings or areas it is possible you could have a mold predicament that needs to be treated promptly. It is important to act quickly when dealing with mold to prevent illness and infections.
