Mold is a common indoor air quality concern. Mold spores are found everywhere in the environment and will readily grow in moist environments. There are no mold safety standards, so there is no measurable way to determine what mold concentrations are dangerous or what kinds are dangerous. If you have health concerns from mold exposure in your home or other environments, you should contact your primary care physician.
