Mold growth can take place in hard to see or reach areas of properties, like attics, underneath floor boards and behind walls. You may not even realize that mold is growing, but that doesn’t stop it from causing harmful health effects that include asthma flare-ups, allergies and respiratory problems. These effects can be especially harsh on children and the elderly.
There are many different types of mold, but the usual ones that you’ll find growing inside of a home or commercial property are green mold (Peniccillium/Aspergillus) and black mold (Stachybotrys). The green type can cause infections in the eyes, nose, brain, lungs, sinuses and ears. Black is considered toxic mold. It is slimy and can be found growing in wet drywall, carpet, wallpaper and ceiling tiles.
