Mold & Moisture

Mold is a fungus that grows everywhere and thrives in damp environments. Molds can grow on dead organic matter in nature, and their presence is visible only when they form large colonies. While allergic reactions to mold are common, those who aren't allergic can still experience irritation of the eyes, skin, nose, throat and lungs. Some molds also produce mycotoxins that can pose serious health risks to humans and animals. Molds are a common component of household and workplace dust.
