8/14/2012 - DOBBINS AIR RESERVE BASE, Ga. -- Mold is alive, and mold is sneaky. It doesn't even need a constant source of water to sustain life, which isn't a very comforting fact. Mainly all it needs is a wet or damp surface to be a menace.
Mold can be in your walls, shoes or on your food, and those are just places you can see. What about hidden places, like under carpets, in the attic and appliances? All molds aren't toxic, but if left to grow, they can be. So, how do we prevent this fuzzy troublemaker?
Mold and mildew are both types of fungus. Even good mold like the Penicillium Species, used to make penicillin, is a bad mold. Mold is often gray or black, but it can be orange, green or white.
