MOLD is part of the natural environment and plays a part in nature by breaking down dead organic matter such as fallen leaves and dead trees. Molds reproduce by means of tiny spores that that float through the air outdoors, and indoors. When mold spores land on a wet surface indoors they begin to grow. Mold growth indoors should be avoided because molds produce allergens, irritants, and potentially toxic substances. Outdoors these irritants are so diluted that they don’t cause any problems except for the most hyper allergenic individuals. But in the confined spaces of the indoor environment they can reach higher concentrations and have the potential to cause health problems. Inhaling or touching mold spores may cause allergic reactions. Allergic reactions are common and include hay fever type symptoms, such as sneezing, runny nose, red eyes, and skin rash. Mold can also cause asthma attacks in people with asthma who are allergic to mold. Research on the health effects of mold are ongoing and those listed above are not all the potential health effects of exposure to indoor mold.
