What is mold?
Mold is a small organism known as fungus which grows in the dark and damp corners of a house. Molds can be black, green, and orange, white and can reside both indoor as well as outdoors. Mold basically develop on moisture and is present in almost everywhere. They are mostly harmless when they are in small amounts but when they settle on damp surfaces of your home they might start to grow. They release spore in the air, which may enter your lungs when you breathe in that air and make you sick.
Impact of mold on humans
Mold releases spore in the air for reproduction and to increase their colony. These spores, which they release are very tiny and can be inhaled by humans as well as animals. If these spores enter deep into someone's lungs, then it may result in respiratory problems like asthma. Allergens are also created by molds, and anyone who is more exposed to allergies may suffer allergic reactions if they inhale these spores.
