Mold is simply a fungus.  Like another fungus, the mushroom, there are good and bad molds.  Some molds are used in making antibiotics, beer, and cheese, while other types can be toxic and cause negative health effects.  But, the main purpose of mold is to break down dead materials, like wood and fiber that are used in building materials.

Mold growth can start as soon as 24 hours after a water event has occurred.  Because of dirt, all crawlspaces are literally mold factories.  Mold can often be seen in the form of a discoloration or a stain.  When molds are present in large quantities, called colonies, they become a health concern.  Molds are divided into 3 basic groups based on health effects:  Allergenic, Pathogenic, and Toxic.  Allergenic molds can cause allergic symptoms such as wheezing or runny nose.  Pathogenic molds can cause suppressed immune systems, or serious health effects in a person who already has a decreased immune system.  Toxic molds can cause serious health effects in almost everyone.  These effects may be short-term irritations to even cancer.
