What is Mold?
Mold spores are extremely minuscule, light-weight, and easily-detached by airflow, vacuuming, walking on carpet, or sitting on a couch. In indoor environments mold spores grow in carpets, hardwoods, walls & any porous materials. They produce and release millions of spores, which are small enough to stay airborne, threatening to attack the human respiratory system. In large quantities, Black mold and molds can cause allergic symptoms similar to those caused by plant pollen. Mold growths can frequently be seen in the form of discoloration, ranging from white to orange and from green to brown or black. In order for mold to grow, it needs food sources (such as leaves, wood, paper, or dirt), a source of moisture, and a place to grow.
What is Toxic Mold?
While mold exists everywhere, it sometimes takes on a dangerous form. The scientific name for the greenish-black mold that turns up on carpet, wallpaper, ceiling tiles- even wet leaves- is Stachybotrys Chartarum or Black Mold. It produces a mycotoxin that causes mycotoxicosis, and is thought to be the cause of “sick building syndrome.”
