Mold is creating a challenge for those who buy, sell, own, manage, lease, insure and finance developed properties. By its’ nature mold is present everyday in our lives, inside and outside of our buildings. Mold is classified as fungi and is easily transported through the air. When provided a water source, mold will grow very rapidly consuming many common materials such as gypsum wall board, cellulose ceiling tiles, wood, paper, dirt and many others. Since molds grow by digesting organic material, they eventually destroy whatever they grow on. Molds release millions of tiny, microscopic, lightweight spores that travel through the air which can be ingested by building occupants. The resultant mold spores have the potential to cause adverse health effects to humans.
