Mold is a kind of fungus that feeds on moisture and grows anyplace where it is damp or where there is decaying matter. Mold is also commonly known as Mildew. Mold by itself is not toxic, but it can become poisonous when it develops toxins, usually mycotoxins. Thus, the term - ‘Toxic Mold’.
Mold is a fungus that is found everywhere, in all parts of the world, and is not something that is seen only in the US. It is characterized by green, blue, or black patches around your home or workplace. Mold is found in the air indoors as well as outdoors. The airborne mold spores can come into homes through windows and doorways. They can also enter homes through ventilation systems, air conditioning ducts, heating systems, or any kind of system that involves intake of outdoor air.
Another way that Mold spores can enter the inner environments of a home or office, are through people and animals. Mold spores can fix themselves onto the clothing, shoes, hair, fur, etc of people and animals, and can thus be transported inside homes. Once indoors, mold spores can be deposited where there is moisture or decaying material, and this helps mold to grow and survive. The regular household mold may not be toxic, but if it starts to produce harmful toxins, then the mold can become toxic mold.
