A mold is types of fungi that are found everywhere. They grow on plants, foods, and in areas with a regular supply of moisture such as near the fridge, in the bathrooms, attics, basements, crawl spaces, leaky roof, or water pipe. These molds are reproduced by a reproductive cells commonly called as spores. These spores float in the air and starts growing when they touch down on a damp surface.
Molds are an essential part of the natural environment. It helps create the balance of nature by breaking down dead organic materials as dry leaves fallen off the ground, and dead trees.
