Mold growth is a very common problem, in fact its all around us.
Mold growth occurs on organic material such as wood and drywall and when moisture is introduced (like a flood or pipe leak) in any amount, and remains moist for at least 24-48 hours, mould will grow.
Common areas mold growth can be found are: bathrooms, kitchens, laundry rooms, furnace rooms, attics and basements, but it can grow anywhere, as long as it has water and food.
Mold left untreated in the home can cause adverse health effects especially in children, convalescents and our older population, it can even affect your pets, check out this Wikipedia entry for more info.
