of mold. These diverse species have much in common:

  1. Molds require an organic food source. The most common food source indoors is cellulose, present in building materials such as wood and drywall.
  2. Molds require oxygen; it is not found underwater.
  3. Molds require moisture. Buildings must be kept dry to prevent mold.
  4. Molds spread by tiny particles called “spores.” Spores may be greenish, brown or black and are visible as fuzzy looking growths on walls, floors or ceilings. They are unpleasant to look at and may emit an unpleasant, musty odor. As mold acts to digest decaying organic matter, it eventually destroys whatever surface it grows on.
  5. Exposure to mold spores may cause mild to severe allergic reactions, depending on the individual.
