Mold or Mildew

Definition

Mold is a superficial often woolly growth produced especially on damp or decaying organic matter or on living organisms by a fungus. 

Mold and mildew are living, breathing organisms that grow and multiply anywhere there is excessive moisture. For those of us exploring our basements, mold and mildew can grow in the walls, carpeting, furniture, or anywhere else it can find a food source.

Consequences


The American Lung Association says, “Dampness and mold have been linked to:

  • Worsening of asthma
  • Coughing
  • Wheezing
  • Nasal congestion
  • Sore throat
  • Sneezing
  • Rhinitis.2

An uncommon disease known as hypersensitivity pneumonitis has been associated with exposure to indoor mold in people who have weakened immune systems.1,3,5 This disease creates flu-like symptoms that may recur.”
