Things you should know about mold and indoor air quality:
Molds are simple microscopic organisms that have been around for thousands of years. They are found everywhere in the environment, indoors and out. Most experts agree that there are 80,000 to 100,000 or more different kinds of mold. Of these, only about 200 have been identified. When sufficient moisture is present and an organic food source exists, an amplification of mold is possible. If the conditions continue, mold can flourish.
