What is Mold?

Mold is a subcategory or sub-classification of Fungi.

  • Over 1.5 million Fungi estimated worldwide.
  • Over 300,000 various identifiable types of mold (estimated, estimates very considerably by microbiologists, scientists and other industry professionals).
  • Only 70,000 Fungi have been “categorized” (that means identified, not studied at significant length).
  • The “Take Away” we hope you get from these abbreviated mold facts is: there is a great deal we do not know about mold. In general, if you have any doubts about a potentially adverse mold situation, we recommend that you proceed on the side of caution and make potentially adverse mold situations into non-issues. The cost of proceeding cautiously, carefully and methodically is typically minuscule compared to the health care costs associated with treatment of mold related  health effects.
