There is always a chance that mold can appear in a home or commercial building because mold spores are a constant presence in the air. Once the spores find the right conditions, they will quickly develop into mold growth. Mold tends to form in areas of homes and buildings where there is a presence of moisture and materials that contain cellulose, a main food source for mold. The presence of mold can result in severe property damage because it feeds on the affected surfaces, as well as negative health effects for those who are exposed. It is important to regularly check for mold in areas where there is moisture and act immediately if you find mold.

Problems with Mold
Mold can appear on just about any type of surface or object in a home or building if there is moisture and a food source. Common building materials such as drywall, wood, and insulation contain cellulose which is why they are prime targets for mold. Mold colonies will eat away at these materials, resulting in discoloration and surface damage that can lead to structural issues. If the mold is not contained and removed, it will spread further throughout the property, causing the damage to be more severe and widespread.
The other major issue with mold is the effect it can have on your health. Exposure to mold spores can cause a number of allergic reactions such as itchy eyes and throat, headaches, nasal congestion, and coughing. Those who are exposed for a prolonged period can develop more serious issues like asthma and respiratory infections.
