What exactly is mold, and how can it affect your life?
Mold is a type of fungi. It’s present in both indoor and outdoor environments and, under normal circumstances, it plays an important part in the cycle of nature. In outdoor environments, mold helps break down organic matter from dead leaves, trees, and plants. Mold is also present in the decomposition process of dead animals.
Mold is present in the air, so we are always in the presence of mold. Outdoors, it doesn’t represent a life threat; mold can become a problem when it starts growing indoors.
Mold can grow and disseminate very quickly. Organic matter and water are the only elements necessary for mold to grow. To give you an idea of what “organic matter” is in your property: it’s everything from the walls, the foundations, and your house furniture. Mold can grow on wood, ceiling tiles, wallpapers, wall insulation, flooring, upholstery… even glass!
Some people are more sensitive to mold than others. Those with respiratory conditions such as asthma, lung diseases, or just allergies, are more likely to struggle with mold damage.
When it comes to mold, prevention, and prompt fixing is key
