As discussed in my last post, mold is one of the nationally accepted and notable concerns affecting human health and safety issues as related to buying or selling real estate. Not all molds are bad so I told you I would discuss it in more detail. I have researched a lot of material and time will not permit me to disclose every source. The following information is published by the EPA and will help up draw a better conclusion about molds.
Introduction to Molds
Molds produce tiny spores to reproduce. Mold spores waft through the indoor and outdoor air continually. When mold spores land on a damp spot indoors, they may begin growing and digesting whatever they are growing on in order to survive. There are molds that can grow on wood, paper, carpet, and foods. When excessive moisture or water accumulates indoors, mold growth will often occur, particularly if the moisture problem remains undiscovered or un-addressed. There is no practical way to eliminate all mold and mold spores in the indoor environment; the way to control indoor mold growth is to control moisture.
