Mold behind aged wallpaper
Mold can be found almost anywhere. It is a type of fungus that consists of small organisms. There are thousands of strains of mold, but the most common indoor molds are Cladosporium, Penicillium and Aspergillus.

They come in all different forms and colors, such as black, white, orange, green or purple. They thrive on moisture, (most likely in damp places like bathrooms, kitchens, basements and crawlspaces), and reproduce by way of spores, which travel in the air. When they land on damp spots of a home, they can start to grow. This results in damage to the exposed area and also contaminating the air surrounding it.

        Prolonged exposure to mold can cause many forms of health issues in a person, especially to those with allergies.

Walls, floors, appliances, carpets and furniture can provide the sustenance needed for mold to thrive. Leaks in roofs, windows, pipes or flooding can provide the moisture needed for the mold process to begin. At A+ Home Inspections, our licensed and certified mold assessors can test the air and affected areas of a home, to determine the extent of possible health risks and property damage.
