Mold is a type of fungus that can grow indoors and outdoors. Mold can enter your home through open doors, windows, vents, and HVAC systems. Mold can also be carried into your home on clothing, shoes, bags, and pets.
Mold thrives in damp, dark, and humid environments. Some common places where mold is found are basements, bathrooms, kitchens, and laundry rooms. Mold can cause health problems, such as respiratory infections, allergies, and skin irritation.
If you see mold in your home, it is important to clean it up immediately. You can clean mold yourself with soap and water. Wearing Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) can help limit your exposure to mold spores. However, if the mold is extensive, you may need to hire a professional cleaning company.
