10 TEN TOP MOLD FACTS

KNOW THE FACTS


Mold fact #1: The main ingredient Mold needs to thrive is Moisture.

Moisture may come from flooding; leaky roofs or water leaks; humidifiers uncleaned or disinfected; damp basements or crawl spaces; house plants; showers; steam from cooking; wet cloths drying indoors; poor air exchange; humidity and condensation during winter; poorly insulated surfaces.

To control indoor mold growth humidity should be maintained between 30 to 40%.

Is Mold In Schools Making Kids Sick?


How Safe Is The Air In Your Child’s School?

“Once school started again, he was having breathing issues; he didn’t have any issues over the summer. This is their health and they have to breathe this in. Every single day that they are there, six hours a day that they are at school. I don’t think that’s fair to them.”

“My child is never sick. She never has stomach problems or anything like that. It’s just weird. It’s mainly stomach pains, asthma. Some kids are having to take their allergy medicine again when they were not taking it this summer.”

“Mold clung to the ceiling and left dark trails across the walls and floor. The teacher had already complained about the stench months before. Stuff was even growing on desks.”


Recently there have been several news articles about mold concerns in schools:

- East Pennsboro school officials meet with parents over mold concerns
- Mold concerns at Largo’s Plato Academy have parents scared
- Parent voices concerns about mold issue at Englewood Elementary
- East Penn plans more school closures as mold cleanup costs deplete savings
- Mold problem at West Vigo High School serious

How Toxic Is Mold?

“Mold can also be completely harmless, but in some situations, it can be truly deadly.” (Dr. Travis Stork, E.R. Physician)

“One study found a child’s risk of asthma can double from simply smelling mold.” (Dr. Jim Sears, Pediatrician)

Most homes and buildings have mold because they offer the three ingredients mold needs to grow:

Food, which includes materials high in cellulose content such as paper and wood. Drywall, wallpaper, carpet, ceiling tiles, dust, and dirt, are also food sources for mold.

Temperatures of 41 degrees to 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit present the perfect environment for mold.


Finally, water is the key ingredient. Mold can not grow without moisture. Where there is moisture, you will find mold. This is one of the reasons that leaking pipes, roofs and ceiling, sewer backups, floods, and condensation end up causing mold issues.

Mold is a concern because we spend up to 90 percent of our time indoors, creating a situation ripe for health issues.

Mycotoxins are naturally occurring substances produced by mold and are pathogenic to animals and humans.


In fact, the T-2 mycotoxin, is so toxic that it has been used in war time situations as a biological war agent. In aerosol form it is referred to as “yellow rain” and was used in Vietnam, Laos, and several other wars.

Some molds, particularly stachybotrys (black mold) and aspergillus are very toxic and constant exposure can lead to serious health issues.

Health risks from mold increase in areas where the relative humidity is above 55%, primarily because higher humidity means higher moisture and mold thrives in this climate.
