Good Mold vs. Bad Mold
When most of us hear the word mold we assume it could be good mold or bad mold. Let's take good mold for example. It is found in medicines to cure illness. It is also found in cheeses and of course the moldy loaf of bread left open a little to long. Next we have a type of normal mold that falls in between good and bad. There are two types of normal molds. There are airborne mold spores and mold growth. There is simply no way around the airborne mold. This type of mold is present to some degree in the air we breath. The mold we see in our homes such as in the window seals and bathtubs are simply common day to day molds. They are not from a sustainable food source. It can be cleaned away, so this makes it normal. The bad mold people fear most is considered bad mold because it could potentially affect the air with elevated mold spores which is quite a bit different than normal. The food sources within a home are pretty numerous. Materials must be properly removed and/or cleaned. Airborne issues must also be addressed.
The first step a homeowner should take if they suspect mold is to call a specialist to ensure the proper precautions and testing are done properly.
