Molds produce tiny spores to reproduce. Mold spores waft through the indoor and
outdoor air continually. When mold spores land on a damp spot indoors, they may
begin growing and digesting whatever they are growing on in order to survive.
There are molds that can grow on wood, paper, carpet, and foods. When excessive
moisture or water accumulates indoors, mold growth will often occur,
particularly if the moisture problem remains undiscovered or un-addressed. There
is no practical way to eliminate all mold and mold spores in the indoor
environment; the way to control indoor mold growth is to control moisture.
