Mold produces tiny spores that can be harmful to humans. It can cause varying forms of breathing problems. Mold can grow very quickly and spread very fast. The key to mold growth is moisture. Stop the moisture and stop the mold.
To prevent mold growth, repair any leaks in a home as quickly as possible and dry damp or wet areas within 24 hours. Clean mold on hard surfaces with detergents. The use of a diluted solution of chlorine bleach is very effective. Mold on very absorbent materials may require the item to be replaced.
