Basics about mold

Click to learn more facts about mold!

Mold is present everywhere, indoors and outdoors, as part of nature. Mold is a a natural recycling system that breaks down dead matter into simpler compounds. The mold that exists in the soil and trees outside your home is not a concern, but the mold in our homes and buildings can cause adverse health effects and property damage.

If indoor humidity is above 60%, risks of fungus growth rise steeply. Hygrometers (humidity meters) can be used to measure humidity accurately. The CDC recommends humidity levels be kept below 50%.

According to the Envirnmental Protection Agency, mold is found in 50% of all structures. In addition to health issues and property damage, indoor mold growth is also a sure sign that there is a moisture problem that must be addressed.
