Mold control (1126)

Key points below

Mold spores float through the air and can cause health problems.  Mold likes a damp environment and needs food, air, the right temperature, and water to grow.  Mold is found indoors and outdoors.  
Everyone breathes in mold spores.  People who are sensitive to mold may have an allergic reaction or an asthma attack if exposed to too much mold.  Contact with mold can also irritate the eyes, skin, nose, throat and lungs. Follow these tips to avoid mold.
