Mould is a type of fungus that grows almost everywhere and grows where there is moisture, warmth, and food (ex. drywall, linens and fabric).  More than 270 different species of mould have been found in Canadian houses, many of them are harmless, but the spores and toxins produced by some molds can be harmful.


In the event that you are experiencing an adverse reaction to mould exposure consult a physician or your family doctor as soon as possible.
