What is Mold and Where Can It Be Found In Homes?

Mold. What is it and where can it be found in your home? Well, with the help of this article from MedicineNet.com, we will try to give you an answer to those two questions.

First off, what is mold? Well, mold actually refers to multiple types of fungi. The most common types of mold that are found indoors include Cladosporium, Penicillium, Alternaria, stachybotrys, and Aspergillus. These molds thrive in damp, warm, and humid environments.

If you find mold in your home, or if you think you may have mold in your home, call a professional remediation service. Molds can reproduce quickly and spread throughout your home if not dealt with in a timely manner. Molds reproduce by forming tiny spores that are not visible to the naked eye. These spores travel through the air and when they land on a surface with adequate conditions, mold grows.

So where are the conditions most favorable for mold growth in your home? Well, the most common areas include your bathroom and basement, but these are not the only places mold may be found indoors. Any moist area can harbor mold, including drywall, ceiling tiles, carpets, furniture, ductwork, roofing, paneling, the areas around plumbing fixtures, and wallpaper.

Mold can be found anywhere. The only way to protect your home is to eliminate the favorable conditions for mold growth. If you find a leak, fix it. And if you do find mold, call a professional remediation service to remove it as soon as possible.
