Mold spores affect indoor air quality and release toxins, which can cause additional health issues such as allergic reactions, asthma attacks, and other respiratory illnesses.

What is black mold?
Black mold (Statchybotrys chartarum) grows in conditions where there is an excessive amount of moisture over a long period of time. Greenish-black in color, it grows in small, damp places like bathrooms, or areas with water damage, excessive humidity, water leaks and condensation. lack mold releases microtoxins, a noxious substance that can cause serious health problems for humans and pets. It should be handled by professionals who have the safety equipment and knowledge to eliminate it safely.
How does mold spread?
Mold needs a damp environment and an organic food source, such as cellulose, which is found in many building materials such as wood, drywall, ceiling tiles, and other household materials such as carpeting and fabrics in order to grow and reproduce. Mold can also grow in the HVAC system, roof, foundation, and other areas where the environment encourages mold growth.
What is mold?
Mold is a fungus found both indoors and outdoors. No one knows how many species of mold exist, but estimates range from tens of thousands to even three hundred thousand, or more. Mold spreads and reproduces by creating spores. Spores can survive conditions that are too sunny, hot, cold, dry or wet for mold to grow. When spores are released they can be carried by air or water to new locations and cause new mold growth. The biggest thing to know about mold is that it needs a damp area to thrive.
Is that smell mold or mildew?
Most of the time, if it smells like mold, it is mold. Mold and mildew odors are due to the presence of fungi in the air, inside pipes or walls, or hidden in other parts of your building. Mold is thicker than mildew, so if the smell is particularly strong, it is almost certainly mold. If you smell mold in your home, you need to act fast to prevent further growth.
