Common Mold Questions:
What Is Mold ?
organisms, present virtually everywhere,
indoors and outdoors. Molds, along
with mushrooms and yeasts, are fungi
and are needed to break down dead
material and recycle nutrients in the
environment. For molds to grow and
reproduce, they need only a food source
– any organic material, such as leaves,
wood, paper, or dirt— and moisture.
Because molds grow by digesting the
organic material, they gradually destroy
whatever they grow on. Sometimes,
new molds grow on old mold colonies.
Mold growth on surfaces can often be
seen in the form of discoloration,
frequently green, gray, brown, or black
but also white and other colors. Molds
release countless tiny, lightweight
spores, which travel through the air

Should I Be Concerned About Mold In My Home Or Building?
Yes, if indoor mold contamination is
extensive, it can cause very high and
persistent airborne spore exposures.
Persons exposed to high spore levels can
become sensitized and develop allergies
to the mold or other health problems.
Mold growth can damage your
furnishings, such as carpets, sofas and
cabinets. Clothes and shoes in damp
closets can become soiled. In time,
unchecked mold growth can cause
serious damage to the structural
elements in your home.
How much mold can make
It depends. For some people, a
relatively small number of mold spores
can trigger an asthma attack or lead to
other health problems. For other
persons, symptoms may occur only
when exposure levels are much higher.
Nonetheless, indoor mold growth is
unsanitary and undesirable. Basically, if
you can see or smell mold inside your
home or building, take steps to identify and
eliminate the excess moisture and to
cleanup and remove the mold. Consult a professional before cleaning a mold problem on your own
What symptoms are
commonly seen with mold
Molds produce health effects
through inflammation, allergy, or
infection. Allergic reactions (often
referred to as hay fever) are most
common following mold exposure.
Typical symptoms that mold-exposed
persons report (alone or in combination)
• Respiratory problems, such as
wheezing, difficulty breathing, and
shortness of breath
• Nasal and sinus congestion
• Eye irritation (burning, watery, or
• Dry, hacking cough
• Nose or throat irritation
• Skin rashes or irritation
Headaches, memory problems, mood
swings, nosebleeds, body aches and
pains, and fevers are occasionally
reported in mold cases, but their cause is
How am I exposed to indoor
Everyone is exposed to some mold
on a daily basis without evident harm. It
is common to find mold spores in the air
inside homes, and most of the airborne
spores found indoors come from outdoor
sources. Mold spores primarily cause
health problems when they are present
in large numbers and people inhale
many of them. This occurs primarily
when there is active mold growth within
home, office or school where people live
or work. People can also be exposed to
mold by touching contaminated
materials and by eating contaminated food.
