Mold is typically first identified by a persistent musty smell. You may see black or dark green spots on building materials. Symptoms may also appear such as sneezing, coughing, trouble breathing, eye irritation, or rashes.
Mold will grow in dark places or places with excess moisture. Mold grows best between the temperatures of 77 degrees Fahrenheit and 86 degrees Fahrenheit. Common areas include basements, attics, leaky roofs, leaky windows, and leaky pipes. Mold tends to form on porous materials such as cardboard, ceiling tiles, insulation, wood products, drywall, carpet, wallpaper, upholstery, and fabric.
The most common molds that you will find indoors are Aspergillus, Cladosporium, and Penicillium.
Mold reproduces by spores. These spores are carried by air currents and land on suitable surfaces in which they can reproduce. These surfaces are typically moist and in dark places. If the problem is not addressed, spores will continue to travel throughout a property and grow in number.
