  • 3. Mold helps break down, or decompose, organic material.
  • 4. Every home has mold, somewhere.
  • 5. Not all mold is harmfully toxic but it can certainly cause allergy problems.

  • 8 . Mold growth in a home is not limited to flooding & water damage - any exposure to moisture such as a lawn sprinkler, condensation, steam (as from an unvented shower in the bathroom) or periodic leaking that is not attended to will foster the growth of mold.
  • 9. Your homeowner insurance may specifically exclude coverage for damage directly related to mold.
  • 10. Mold spores can not be eliminated from indoor environments; BUT they will only germinate into mold in the presence of moisture.
