Mold is a part of the natural environment. Outdoors, molds play a part in nature by breaking down dead organic matter such as fallen leaves and dead trees, BUT indoors, mold growth should be avoided. Molds reproduce by means of tiny spores; the spores are invisible to the naked eye and float through outdoor and indoor air. Mold may begin growing indoors when mold spores land on surfaces that are wet. There are many types of mold, and none of them will grow without water or moisture to help them along. Control the moisture, humidity or water and you can control the molds.
Many people are ideal candidates for mold related conditions, such as:
- Pregnant women
- The sick or the elderly
- Small children or infants
- Individuals with lowered immune systems (like HIV, certain cancer types, etc.)
- Individuals with respiratory disorders (Asthma, Sinus Infections, allergies, etc.)
Anyone who thinks they have symptoms of mold should see a doctor. If there is visible mold remove it immediately OR if no visible mold is present ….. Have Mold Testing Done.
