What exactly is mold?
House mold is a type of fungus that consists of tiny organisms. These miniscule organisms have a habit of growing in damp and humid areas. Mold reproduces and spreads by putting tiny spores out into the air. These spores can attach to other damp areas on surfaces or within walls. They start growing and put even more spores out into the air. Mold infested air can cause adverse health effects, such as nasal congestion, throat irritation, dryness or irritation on the skin and eyes. Breathing problems like coughing and wheezing are also very common.
