I keep hearing more about mold. Is this a new issue?

Mold is an integral part of our normal environment and is a member of the fungal kingdom. We can’t get rid of it, and in fact we don’t want to.

It actually plays a vital role in our world and keeps the build-up of biological matter in check. It’s job is to break down dead waste (plants, trees, animals, other food sources). It has also been recognized for at least 4,000 years as something we don’t want growing inside our homes. In the Jewish/Christian Old Testament Bible, you can find mold inspection and remediation protocols for mold growth in our homes1. So, while it is an age-old organism that we need in our world, we've always known mold growth in any home or business isn't good.
