Mold isn’t a scientific term, but it is used for lots of types of fungi unwanted, unappealing patches of black, brown, yellow, pink, green, smelly, fuzzy growths. We can find it and its countless species indoors and outdoors.
Mold or called in a different way fungus can cause any type of problems such us (musty odors, moldy carpets, water leaks, soggy drywall, and poisonous mushrooms, among others). But they also have a positive side, are responsible for penicillin and blue cheese; yeasts are fungi (plural of fungus) used to make bread, beer, and wine; and some types of mushrooms are considered edible delicacies. And without fungi to break them down, the world would be buried in leaves, trees, grass, and garbage.
Even though mold and its spores are in every area, active mold growth requires moisture. Whether on visible surfaces or hiding behind drywall, in attics, or under carpets, indoor mold grows in the presence of excessive dampness or water. Also found in damp indoor environments are:
break-down products of bacteria and molds, such as proteins, cell-wall particles (glucans) and volatile organic compounds (the actual cause of the musty odor associated with mold);
airborne chemicals, gasses, and particulate matter caused by the destruction of materials by growing molds.

An actively-growing mold damages the material it lives on, thereby impairing the structural integrity. Also is associated with some untoward health effects in humans, including allergies and infections.
