Mold is a microscopic organism that grows from spores. Mold spores travel through the indoor and outdoor air continuously. When mold spores find a water source, they may begin growing. Mold can grow on wood, paper, carpet and other organic materials. An ignored or unnoticed water leak inside your home may result in mold growth.
The Institute of Medicine found there was enough evidence to link indoor exposure to mold with upper respiratory tract problems which could include coughing, and wheezing in otherwise healthy people including children. The Institute of Medicine also found evidence linking indoor mold contact and respiratory illness in otherwise healthy children. Mold is also linked to depression because of weakened functions of the brain.
Mold is a very opportunistic microbe. You can have all the elements, cellulous material, low light, and the proper temperature, and it still needs one more element in order to multiply. That element is moisture. Moisture problems need to be determined and corrected as soon as possible because mold can start growing within 24 to 48 hours after initial contact with water.
