Mold is a variety of fungus that is responsible for decaying organic matter, which is a necessary part of the cycle of life. However, if mold is left to grow in your home it can deteriorate your home’s floorboards, carpet, wallpaper or furniture. Mold spores are constantly floating through the air and only grow where there is moisture and no air circulation to whisk the spores away.
Remove all of the mold growth in your home. This will prevent mold from spreading when you increase air circulation in your home. Throw away items that have become overly contaminated with mold and items that cannot be cleaned.
