Mold is a fungus that reproduces by releasing tiny spores into the air. These spores are microscopic organisms that are present in both indoor and outdoor environments. No one knows how many species of mold exist but estimates range from tens of thousands to perhaps three hundred thousand different kinds of mold. Mold grows best in warm, damp, and humid conditions. It spreads and reproduces by making mold spores. Mold spores can survive harsh environmental conditions, such as dry conditions, that do not support normal mold growth. Some of the more common forms of indoor mold species are Cladosporium, Penicillium, Alternaria and Aspergillus. The presence of certain species of mold and mold spores in a property can result in mild to severe health effects in humans.
