All About Mold
Mold plays a very important role in our lives. Without mold, we wouldn't have certain life-saving drugs like penicillin. We also wouldn't have cheese.
Sometimes, though, mold grows in places it shouldn't - including inside our homes or workplaces.
This kind of mold needs to be cleaned up so that it doesn't cause health problems, such as headaches, runny eyes and noses, and coughing; or trigger attacks in kids and adults with asthma.
