Sick Buildings / Toxic Mold Exposure
Mold spores can grow in places where there is excessive moisture, including places where leaks have occurred, or where there has been flooding. In addition, certain building materials can provide nutrients that encourage mold to grow. Particularly, wet cellulose materials, such as paper and paper products, cardboard, ceiling tiles, wood, and wood products, are conducive for the growth of some molds. Even common materials like paints, wallpaper, insulation materials, drywall, and carpet can support mold growth. Some molds are toxiogenic, meaning that they can produce toxins. This toxic mold, as well as more the common mold regularly found in residential and commercial buildings, can adversely affect those who are exposed to the mold. Exposure can occur via direct contact or through the air.
