Mold spores are very tiny, light-weight, and easily-detached by airflow, vacuuming, walking on carpet, or sitting on a couch. In indoor environments mold spores grow in carpets, hardwoods, walls & any porous materials. They produce and release millions of spores, which are small enough to stay airborne, threatening to invade the human respiratory system.

In large quantities, Black mold and molds can cause allergic symptoms like those caused by plant pollen. Mold growths can often be seen in the form of discoloration, ranging from white to orange and from green to brown or black.

For mold to grow, it needs food sources (such as leaves, wood, paper, or dirt), a source of moisture, and a place to grow.

The scientific name for the greenish-black mold that turns up on carpet, wallpaper, ceiling tiles, and even wet leaves is Stachybotrys Chart arum or Black Mold.
