Mold won’t go away on its own. Mold and mildew occur naturally in the world around us. There ARE benefits – think blue cheese and penicillin. But as a rule, you don’t want to breathe it in.
Certain species of mold such as the greenish-black mold Stachybotrys chartarum, thrives indoors – walls, ceilings, vents, HVAC systems, under carpets, and anywhere it can find moisture. Mold spores spread through the air, and we inhale them. They enter our lungs where they thrive and reproduce in the warm, moist environment. This type of mold exposure may result in internal mycotoxin buildup that leads to chronic illness or disease.
You can’t afford to ignore a mold problem.
