GENERAL MOLD INFORMATION Everyone has mold, in fact 1 out of 4 homes has toxic mold! Mold is not something to ignore! Most people try to remove mold with chlorine bleach - THIS DOES NOT WORK! Mold is a living organism that has a root - bleach ONLY DISCOLORS the mold! **BLEACH DOES NOT KILL THE ROOT OF THE MOLD!** This is similar to weeds - you can buy the spray to kill the surface weeds to make the yard look better, however, if the root of the weed is not removed, it grows back!
What Is Mold?
Mold is fungi that can be found both indoors and outdoors. No one knows how many species of fungi exist but estimates range from tens of thousands to perhaps three hundred thousand or more. Molds grow best in warm, damp, and humid conditions, and spread and reproduce by making spores. Mold spores can survive environmental conditions, such as dry conditions, that do not support normal mold growth.

Where Are Molds Found?
Molds are found in virtually every environment and can be detected, in both indoors and outdoors, year round. Mold growth is encouraged by warm and humid conditions. Outdoors they can be found in shady, damp areas or places where leaves or other vegetation is decomposing. Indoors they can be found where humidity levels are high, such as basements or showers. Additional methods of finding mold are through the use of surface sample, particle counters, smell, vision and other means.
