The microscopic organisms; Molds, need the presence of just an organic material coupled with sufficient moisture to exist and thrive and is therefore found outdoors as well as indoors. Though indoor moisture is generally prevented, situations such as leaky roof, plumbing leaks, sewer and sink overflow, humidifiers, etc may provide the appropriate condition for mold growth. They can be spotted in the form of discoloration of surfaces such as wood, walls, and furniture, in the colors green, black, brown, and grey.

It is important to get these molds removed since they gradually destroy the surface they grow on. Other than damage of structural elements in the building or house, the tiny spores released by molds contaminate the air leading to various allergies and other health problems owing to exposure to high spore levels. The symptoms may include nasal and sinus congestion, shortness of breath, dry cough, headaches, irritation in eyes, and so on. People with respiratory problems or weak immune systems, infants, and the elderly are more susceptible to the health problems caused by molds.
