Mold is a natural part of the environment. Both indoor and outdoor, mold spores can be found hanging out on surfaces or floating in the air. They’re relatively harmless in this state, but they become a bit more dangerous under the right (or wrong) conditions. When found in always wet and sometimes dark conditions, mold will begin to grow and spread quickly.
Mold can be caused by a variety of issues, all involving some level of water damage:
- Roof leak
- Plumbing leak
- Appliance mishap
- Heavy rainfall
- Flooding in home
- Poorly ventilated bathroom
