Mold is a naturally occurring fungus that can be found growing on organic substances where oxygen and moisture are present. With over 100,000 species, some mold exists almost everywhere and is common in buildings. Human response to mold varies, but can cause severe health effects in people who react to the allergens or potent toxins generated by mold.
Although there are current no regulations or exposure limits, mold prevention, remediation and clean up should be performed in order to reduce the negative health effects that may be caused by mold.
