Is Mold in Your Home Dangerous?

While there is disagreement about the danger posed by mold in the home, it has been known to cause allergic reactions in certain people, especially children. On the other hand, we all breathe in millions of mold spores every year with no real ill health effects.

To be on the safe side, eliminate any leaks in kitchens and baths that can lead to mold growth and use vent fans to provide adequate ventilation. If you do see signs of mold, use an environmentally friendly cleaner to remove it or hire professionals to handle the job.
