What is mold?

Mold is a fungi growth that can be from one of a variety of fungi types, found growing on damp surfaces or in high moisture areas. Mold typically has a fuzzy-like and dark appearance, being made up of a dense formation of spores which can escape and promote additional mold growth in other areas.

Mold can appear on other substances such as food as well, but presents additional health hazards when growing in homes and buildings. Mold spores can cause a number of health symptoms, respiratory effects, physical pain and discomfort, and even toxicity in some cases.
