What is Mold?

People sometimes refer to mold as mildew. However, the terms are not interchangeable, as mildew only refers to specific types of molds, whereas mold is a more generic term.

Mold is a type of fungus that develops on organic matter that is either damp or rotting. There are different species of mold, which can grow indoors or outdoors. Mold spores are present in even the cleanest of environments, which means that everyone experiences exposure to mold at some point in their life. Although molds themselves are not toxic, certain types can be toxigenic. This means that they create spores or cell fragments that produce toxins. They can also produce inflammatory substances and allergens. Research indicates that mold and/or dampness exposure during childhood years can increase a person’s risk of developing asthma and allergies.

The Mold Testing / Assessment Process

Testing for mold can be a DIY job but it’s often not advisable. Between ensuring you’ve acquired the proper testing equipment, having adequately followed testing protocols to ensure an accurate test and limiting the exposure of you and your family to mold spores, you may be completely overwhelmed. That’s why it’s advisable, in many circumstances, to call in a professional who can provide you with safe testing and accurate, verifiable results.

Common Types of Mold

Mold is a broad term that describes a range of micro-organisms that grow in the presence of a food source and usually require sufficient moisture. More specifically, mold is a type of fungi, and growths are sometimes generically called “mildew.” Mold usually falls into one of three broad categories.

  • Allergenic molds are not toxic in and of themselves, but can trigger allergic reactions such as asthma.

  • Pathogenic molds can trigger illnesses in people already weakened by other causes.

  • Toxigenic families of molds are the most dangerous because they create their own toxins that can lead to health problems that are sometimes lethal.
