Mold Damage

Molds are fungi that are found indoors, and they prefer warm, damp conditions where they can produce spores to spread.  These spores can survive for long and harsh periods of dry conditions to begin growth again.  The most common molds are Cladosporium, Penicillium, and Aspergillus.  What you need to know is that mold is common in homes.  Chances are, you have it in your home, but you don’t notice it.


Molds are found indoors all year.  Growth is aided by humid and warm conditions where humidity is high such as basements and showers.  This is why it is important to run dehumidifiers in basements and have proper ventilation in bathrooms.


Molds can affect people who are sensitive to them.  Exposure to mold can produce stuffiness, eye and/or skin irritation and wheezing.  Some people can have severe reactions which can be fever and shortness of breath.  Some people with chronic lung issues can develop lung infections
