 12 Common Types of Mold Found in the Home #infographic

While some types of fungi may be edible, such as mushrooms or yeast, mold is not one of them. Intake or even inhalation can actually be harmful. There are more than 100,000 forms of molds indoors and outdoors. We grow best in humid and sparsely lit areas and in attics, basements and bathrooms host several varieties of this unwanted fungus.

Mold grows in humidity places so that moisture does not build up and settle down in areas so that moisture remains as low as possible in your own home. Aim for humidity levels below 50% at all times. This can be handled by an air conditioner or dehumidifier.

It is vital that you clear and dry the area in 48 hours, irrespective of whether the storm has affected you and whether your basement is flooded or a pipe bursts into your home and turns your bathroom into a swimming pool. Wipe off all surfaces with a tissue when most of the water is gone and dry with the fans.
