The Facts About Mold in a Home

Nearly everyone has heard scary stories of black mold infesting a home. From these stories, and from personal experience, people know that mold is unsightly, unhealthy, may have a musty odor and can cause expensive damage to a property. The term mycotoxin, which simply means any toxin present from a fungus, is enough to produce nightmares. Instead of having people’s minds roam with worry, it is good to get the facts straight. Here are four important facts about mold.

Mold Is Natural. Molds occur naturally throughout the world and are present in nearly every environment. The spores of molds are microscopic and they can enter a home through any opening. Generally, molds do not cause much problem for humans. It is mostly when a mold begins to grow in a home that it begins to be a problem.

Mold and Property Damage. As well as the possible health effects, mold in a home can be unpleasant to look at and can discharge a musty odor. It will expand in size if not treated quickly and infiltrate carpeting and air ducts. In many cases, insurance companies will not cover mold damage. Professional services may be required to utilize equipment such as a HEPA air filtration device in your home.
