Understanding mold

Mold is always present. It travels through the air in spores, which are kind of like mold seeds. Unless an environment is totally sanitary, there will always be some mold spores present in the air. Problems really arise when dampness collects somewhere, mold spores latch on and begin to reproduce or colonize.

A mold colony that is large enough to see is large enough to cause health issues. Mold colonies are very common behind and inside of walls, so oftentimes, a visible patch of mold on a wall is a sign of a much more extensive issue.

Mold is not toxic, per se, but the mytotoxins that it produces, (i.e. it’s spores) are. Mold spores can be particularly detrimental to those that are susceptible to respiratory issues.
