What is mold?

Many people have heard of the term mold, but what is it exactly?

Mold is a form of fungus, and several different types can grow outdoors and indoors. Molds produce spores, which are spread by drifting around in the air, decreasing the air quality in your home and cause health conditions. Moist and warm climates are where mold spores thrive the most and begin to grow in damp areas.

Mold can grow on fabric, wood, glass, plastic, and more. With mold potentially causing long-term damage to your home and health, it’s essential to have a specialist assess the severity and safely remove it.
