Where Does Potentially Harmful Mold Come From?

Mold can grow just about anywhere, but it will always require moisture, oxygen and an organic substance to grow on. When mold is formed, it can create spores that can fly through the air and make it’s way onto other surfaces, further spreading the mold. Yes, even in your lungs. This is what may cause allergic reactions in people.

  • If you work in an environment that contains a high level of humidity, or working with water or any form of water including mist, vapor, etc; there is a chance that you may be working with potentially harmful mold.
  • Molds also typically thrive on surfaces such as carpet, paper, wood, food and insulation. If mold is left on a surface for a long period of time, it will begin to damage that material.
  • If your office building was built in the 1970’s, the common construction practice was to build with little ventilation, encouraging mold growth.
