There are many different kinds of molds. They are fungus-like organisms that multiply on moist, organic surfaces and produce spores which float in the air and germinate when the conditions are favorable. Mold spores, when inhaled, can cause allergy symptoms.
Molds are everywhere! Outside they are found wherever there is plant material and moisture. When mowing, raking leaves, or mulching is taking place in your neighborhood there are molds in the air that may be inhaled. Inside there are molds associated with bathtub mildew, house plants, leftover foods and musty attics.
