Indoor Air Quality (Mold) Minimize
Mold can be found almost anywhere; it can grow on virtually any organic substance, as long as moisture and oxygen are present.  There are molds that can grow on wood, paper, carpet, foods, and insulation.  When excessive moisture accumulates in buildings or on building materials, mold growth will often occur, particularly if the moisture problem remains undiscovered or unaddressed.  It's impossible to eliminate all mold and mold spores in the indoor environment, however, mold growth can be controlled indoors by controlling moisture indoors.
