The Villages MOLD Issues

Mold is a fungus that grows on organic materials, such as wood and paper. It often starts out as a small spot of green or black fuzz, but it will begin to spread if not taken care of quickly. If you have mold growing in your basement walls you need to do something about it right away!

A mold outbreak can be a serious problem and should be dealt with as soon as possible. You should be aware that mold can release tiny spores into the air, which you may inhale. This means it is important to act fast in order to remove all of the molds before things get out of hand!

Two Categories Of Molds:

Allergenic Mold

This type of mold is not harmful and won’t make you sick. It’s very common in homes because it uses dead organic matter as a food source, which can be found anywhere inside your house or outside on plants and trees. This mold only poses a risk when it’s disturbed and the spores become airborne, which can cause allergic reactions in some people.

Pathogenic Mold

The types of molds that will make you sick are pathogenic. Pathogenic molds are dangerous because they release spores into the air that can make you sick when you breathe them in or cause an allergic reaction if your skin comes into contact with them.

These types of mold also produce mycotoxins which will weaken the immune system and make you sick.
