Mold is one of those things that many people don’t think about, and fewer want to talk about. Most people don’t realize that mold is all around us is the air. Usually mold spore are not present in large enough quantities to be an issue. However, when they are they can be hazardous to our health. Molds that produce mycotoxins are the ones that we have to look out for. They are often referred to as toxic. Mycotoxins are a serious threat, and if you are exposed to high levels you can develop neurological problems or even die. For significant mold growth to occur, there must be a source of water, a source of food, and a substrate capable of sustaining growth. Building materials found in your home like plywood, drywall, carpet, and carpet padding are food for molds. Mold growth can begin very quickly after being exposed to moisture.
