Mold is a naturally occurring spore that is found everywhere in nature. A majority of molds are harmless. Black mold, however, is a destructive mold that also poses a health risk to anyone who inhales the spores.

Flooding and water leaks are often associated with mold growth. However, fires also create a great environment for mold growth. Putting out the fire can leave areas of your home damp, creating the perfect environment for mold growth.

Mold grows rapidly, and once it has begun to reproduce, it also causes extensive damage. Mold will eat anything, including drywall, wood, cloth materials, and even paper products. Mold likes to grow in dark and damp places, which means that a lot of damage can occur before you are even aware of the problem.

Mold Is A Health Problem
