Mold is a natural condition that can occur in any structure. Mold occurs most often when an area of a structure has sustained water damage or is consistently moist. Mold can grow on any surface and, if not treated, can cause health problems for people spending time in the building. People with breathing difficulties, immune system problems or allergies, are more likely to experience ill effects due to mold. Infants, children, pregnant women, and the elderly tend to be more sensitive to the risks of mold exposure.
