It is impossible to remove all mold and mold spores indoors. Mold spores can be found floating through the air and also in household dust. Mold spores can only grow when moisture is present. Indoor mold growth can be prevented and controlled by regulating moisture indoors. If there is mold growth in your home, the mold must be removed and the moisture issue must be corrected. If the source of the moisture is not determined and corrected, the mold problem will continue to exist.
What is Mold?
Mold is a type of fungus that grows on plants and fibers and is most frequently associated with damp, musty places such as bathrooms, kitchens, basements, and attics. Mold travels through the air as tiny spores that make their way into the wet regions of a house or building, where they breed. Mold is not only ugly and unsightly when seen; it can also adversely affect the air quality in your home. More importantly, it is a serious hazard to one’s health, especially to those that suffer from allergies and asthma. Mold spores can be the cause of problems as simple as a constant throat tickle, sniffles, or, go as far as asthma and pneumonia.
How can I detect mold in my home?
Mold, in a house, is most often found on walls, floors, ceilings, counter tops, and carpets exposed to moisture. These microscopic spores can be hidden inside a wall, behind a tub, and even under a kitchen sink. One particularly troublesome hiding place is inside the duct work and associated components of central forced-air heating and air-conditioning systems. Some mold may be invisible behind walls, but can still be active and cause house mold damage as well as health problems. Moreover, even dry or dead mold can release toxins and cause health issues. If you had previous water damage issues from prior leaks and floods, you may not be aware that mold may be growing in your house. Any home components or furnishings damaged by previous leaks or plumbing accidents could be growing mold.
Mold needs moisture, oxygen, a food source and a surface. A mold spore in search of a home can come by those essentials relatively easily. The insulation in the walls, ceilings, and baseboards is where mold creates its ideal incubator.
