WHAT HOMEOWNERS SHOULD KNOW ABOUT MOLD. Mold is a type of fungus. It occurs naturally in the environment, and it is necessary for the natural decomposition of plant and other organic material. It spreads by means of microscopic spores borne on the wind, and is found everywhere life can be supported. If the growing conditions are right, mold can grow in your home. Most homeowners are familiar with mold growth in some form or another. Examples of mold are bread mold, and mold that may grow on bathroom tile. In order to grow, mold requires a food source. This may be supplied by items found in the home, such as fabric, carpet or even wallpaper, or by building materials, such as drywall, wood and insulation, to name a few. Mold also requires a temperate climate. The best growth has been determined to occur between 40 and 100 degrees F. Finally, mold growth requires moisture, which is the only mold growth factor that can be controlled in a residential setting. A homeowner can minimize or reduce mold growth by minimizing moisture. Common sources of home moisture include spills, leaks, overflows, condensation, and high humidity. As Florida is prone to extremely high humidity, good housekeeping and home maintenance practices are essential to prevent and eliminate mold growth. If moisture is allowed to remain, mold can develop within 24 to 48 hours.
CONSEQUENCES OF MOLD. Although not all mold is harmful, certain strains have been shown to have adverse health effects in susceptible persons. The most common effects are allergic reactions, including skin irritation, watery eyes, running nose, coughing, sneezing, congestion, sore throat and headache. Individuals with suppressed immune systems may risk infections. Some experts disagree about the level of mold exposure that may cause health problems, and about the exact nature and extent of the health problems that may be caused by mold. The Center for Disease Control states that a casual link between the presence of toxic mold and serious health conditions has not yet been proven.
WHAT HOMEOWNERS CAN DO. The homeowner can take positive steps to reduce or eliminate the occurrence of mold growth in the home, and thereby minimize any possible adverse effects that may be caused by mold. These steps include the following:
Whether or not you as a homeowner experience mold growth depends largely on how you manage and maintain your home. Every home contains products, materials and industrial chemicals that are used in constructing the home which may cause allergic or other bodily reactions in some individuals. You should consult your physician to determine the chemicals that may adversely affect you or members of your family. Our responsibility as a Home Inspector must be limited to things that we can control.
