Effects of Mold
The Institute of Medicine, now the Health and Medicine Division of the National Academies, have found that indoor molds can cause respiratory problems. Exposure to mold can result in coughs, fevers, and other symptoms of an allergy or flu.
Molds belong in the fungi kingdom. This organism comes in thousands of species, and can grow and survive on any environment or surface.
Toxic mold or black mold is found commonly on wood, wallpaper, and drywall in houses and structures. Its pervasiveness and the hazards it causes are of great concern to most. Molds cannot be entirely eradicated, but professionals can apply preventive measures to control and inhibit the growth of mold.
