What is White Mold and Why is it an Issue?


What is White Mold?

The term “white mold” refers to a variety of mold species that you may find growing in your home. It looks similar in appearance to other mold and flourishes in moist or musty environments. Its color can often be difficult to spot, making it go commonly unnoticed. It should be noted that this mold likes to grow on or around organic materials. It can often be found in soil, wood, drywall, leather, or paper products. 

Why is White Mold an Issue?

Mold is a normal element of our natural environment. However, when it enters our homes and is left to its own devices, it can cause serious problems. Consequently, this can pose a threat not only to our health but also to the structural security of our homes. Indeed, prolonged contact with white mold may cause health issues such as allergic reactions, eye irritation, headaches, respiratory issues, and more. Not to mention, neglected white mold can lead to minor to serious destruction to the wood structure of your home.
