Summer is filled with the sun, tan lines and cool drinks, but unfortunately in Florida, it is often interrupted by wet weather. This damp environment has sprung up reports of mold from students in Knights Circle and the Towers at Knights Plaza.
Mold is a form of fungi that is natural in the environment. Spores from mold move through the air and are attracted to damp areas, where they land and multiply. Mold can grow on just about any surface; however, cloth, wood, wallboard and insulation are good sources of food for mold, along with moisture. It only takes 24 to 48 hours for mold to grow on a wet surface.
