Mold is more than a smelly nuisance. For homeowners, it can discolor and damage their home and present a serious health concern.
Molds are organisms which are neither plant nor animal. They are part of the fungi kingdom. Unlike plants, molds do not get their energy from the sun through photosynthesis. In fact the sun's ultraviolet light inhibits mold growth.
Molds also digest or "eat" the material they are growing on. The role of mold is to break down decaying organic matter such as dead plants, leaves or dead animals.
Protect Your Home From Mold
Mold is a problem most homeowners rarely think about and hope to never experience.
It can grow almost anywhere, indoors or outdoors. Mold grows best in damp, warm conditions, such as basements, showers or decks. And, it can grow quickly.
Living under conditions where high mold levels are present can be dangerous. Not only can mold cause adverse health effects, but left unattended, it will continuously grow and can damage and destroy whatever material it comes into contact with.
People are exposed to mold through skin contact, inhalation or ingestion, which may cause mild to severe allergic reactions, depending on a person’s sensitivity.
