Mold 101: What is Mold? How does Mold Grow?

Mold is a fungus that can grow almost anywhere, indoors or outdoors. The approximately 100,000 species of mold that exist all share the same basic characteristics: the need for oxygen, moisture, and nutrients to grow. Indoor wood, wallboard, wallpaper, upholstery, and dust can be excellent nutrient sources.

Although mold can grow in most environments, it grows best in damp, warm conditions. Molds spread and reproduce by making spores, which are small and lightweight; able to travel through the air; can resist dry, adverse environmental conditions, and are capable of surviving a long time.

Individuals are exposed to mold through skin contact, inhalation, or ingestion, which may cause mild to severe allergic reactions, depending on an individual’s sensitivity. Working or living in moldy conditions can be dangerous. Not only does it present health dangers, but left unattended it will continuously grow and can damage and destroy whatever material it has inhabited.
