Here in the lowcountry, the high humidity creates the ideal environment for the growth of mold. Wherever there is moisture is a good place for mold to grow. A faulty air conditioning system or a leaky pipe can give spores enough moisture to thrive.
Outdoors, mold plays an important part in the ecosystem. Indoors, however, these tiny particles can cause numerous problems. Spores can get inside with a gust of wind, on pets and on clothes. Heating and cooling systems blow the spores around until they land on a surface where they can live off of oxygen, moisture and a food source. In very little time, an infestation can be underway.
