What is mold?
Mold is a fungus, which makes spores rather than seeds like plants. These spores float in the air like pollen. When people with a mold allergy inhale the spores, they get allergy symptoms. There are many different kinds of mold. Some kinds you can see, others you can’t.
Outdoor molds can grow on rotting logs and fallen leaves, in compost piles, and on grasses and grains. Unlike pollens, molds do not die with the first frost in late fall or early winter. They just stop growing during this time. In the spring, they grow on plants killed by the cold.
Indoor molds grow in places where there is moisture, such as the kitchen, bathroom, and basement.
