What is mold?
Mold is a member of the fungi family. It grows from mold spores that land on a wet or moisture-filled surface. As they grow, they will become visible, but they can also float through the air undetected.
In Your Home
- Mold is more likely to grow in areas with constant moisture and little light such as basements, attics or even corners of your home. Also, areas behind furniture that receive little light as susceptible to mold as well. Make sure to always clean up even small spills. Moisture is mold’s best friend.
- An unknown earthy or musty smell is a fair warning that there could be mold present somewhere within your home.
- Is there a crack in an area of your home that’s expanding? A warped situation that continues to grow? Both can be a sign of present mold.
