Yes. Despite the rapidly growing body of knowledge about mold, it remains the subject of much confusion. Whether in the shower, on a stale piece of bread, or wet drywall, we have all encountered mold at one time or another.

According to the Centers for Disease Control And Prevention (CDC), Mold is prevalent.  No one knows precisely how many mold species exist, found outdoors and indoors, but it is estimated to exceed over 300,000 strains. We live around mold all the time, but it becomes unsafe when it grows inside the structures we occupy, especially when it grows to unhealthy proportions, affecting our health and well-being.
