WHAT IS MOLD?

Molds are fungi that can be found everywhere, indoors and outdoors. Experts estimate upwards of three hundred thousand or more types of mold. Molds grow best in warm, damp, and humid conditions, and spread and reproduce by making spores. Mold spores can survive harsh environmental conditions, such as dry conditions, that do not support normal mold growth.

WHERE ARE MOLDS FOUND?

Molds are found in virtually every environment and can be detected, both indoors and outdoors, year round. Mold growth increases with warm and humid conditions. Outdoors they can be found in shady, damp areas, particularly in places where leaves or other vegetation builds up. Indoors they can be found where humidity levels are high, such as basements, showers, inside cabinets where plumbing is located, and behind drywall.

HEALTH AFFECTS OF MOLD

There are a variety of adverse health affects and some people are quite sensitive to molds. For these people, exposure to molds can lead to symptoms such as stuffy nose, wheezing, and red/itchy eyes, or skin. People with allergies to molds, or with asthma, may have more intense reactions. Severe reactions may include fever and shortness of breath.

People with a weakened immune system, such as people receiving treatment for cancer, people who have had an organ or stem cell transplant, and people taking medicines that suppress the immune system, are more likely to get mold infections.

Exposure to mold or dampness may also lead to development of asthma in some individuals. Interventions that improve housing conditions can reduce morbidity from asthma and respiratory allergies.

COMMON SUGGESTIONS
  • Keep humidity at suggested levels - between 40% and 60% - all day long. An air conditioner or dehumidifier will help you keep the level low. Keep in mind that humidity levels change over the course of a day with changes in the moisture in the air and the air temperature, so you will need to check the humidity levels more than once a day.

  • Use an air conditioner or a dehumidifier during humid months.

  • Be sure the home has adequate ventilation, including exhaust fans.

  • Add mold inhibitors to paints before application.

  • Clean bathrooms with mold killing products.

  • Do not carpet bathrooms and basements.

  • Remove or replace previously soaked carpets and upholstery.
