Mold spores are kind of like the seeds of mold, though, they are actually
smaller than pollen grains. This makes them ideal candidates for annoyances
in people who have allergies because they enter the respiratory system so
easily. They are also very troublesome for people who have asthma, as they
can cause attacks from time to time. Mold spores, like pollen and seeds,
come from mold itself. They are often greater in number near large areas of
organic materials like golf courses, forests, and other natural features.
However, when there are higher concentrations of mold spores in an enclosed
space is where people usually run into trouble.
There are many different types of mold spores. Some are slightly more
gelatinous and thus dissolve better in standing water, others are more
solid and wait for the perfect humidity to come along and allow it to
activate. Once a mold spore finds a good spot to sprout, they release
enzymes to break down the organic materials around it, which allows it to
grow and then form into a mold colony. As a mold colony grows, it releases
more spores which then get put into the air. They also attach easily to pet
fur, carpets, and other surfaces, relaxing until they, again, find the
perfect habitat for mold growth.
People who have allergies to mold spores will certainly find them quite
annoying, but pretty much everyone dreads the finding that they have an
elevated or above normal reading of mold spores in the air, because where
there is a lot of mold spores, a mold infestation can not be too far
behind. That is why it’s important to hire a mold remediation professionals
who knows how to do air testing to see where your mold problems lie and get
started on having your mold problems under control.
