Common Household Molds and Your Health [INFOGRAPHIC]

Last updated 1 year ago

Did you know that there are over 400,000 different kinds of mold in the world? Mold can grow just about anywhere, including on food, clothing, soil, walls, floors, and ceilings. You have probably seen fuzzy bluish-green mold on expired fruit, but mold can also grow in places you can’t readily see. Mold especially loves dark, damp places like basements and bathrooms. If your basement has been flooded or you have a leaky basement, there’s a good chance you have mold in your house right now. It is important to repair your wet basement to prevent more mold from growing, as it can damage both the structure of your house and your health. Some molds cause allergic reactions like coughing and runny noses, while others may cause serious health problems such as cancer. Check out our infographic to learn more about household molds lurking in your basement and how they can affect your health.
