OSHA Mold Facts Mobile App
Molds are the most common forms of fungi found on earth.
How does it work?
They can grow on almost any material, as long as moisture and oxygen are available. Most molds reproduce through the formation of spores, tiny microscopic cells that are resistant to drying and are released into the air. Airborne spores are found both indoors and outdoors. When spores land on a suitable moist surface, they begin to grow and release chemicals that digest and can eventually destroy the surface and underlying materials. Molds can also cause adverse health effects. The OSHA Mold Facts mobile app covers Health Effects of Mold Exposure, People at Greatest Risk, How to Recognize Mold and Preventing Mold Growth and General Cleanup Tips.
