  Mold - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Molds, or mould, are various fungi that cover surfaces in the form of fluffy mycelia and usually produce masses of spores (most commonly asexual spores but sometimes sexual).
Mold is often a problem in damp areas such as basements and bathrooms, and after floods.
Mold problems occur in air-tight homes more frequently in the warmer months (when humidity reaches high levels inside the house, and moisture is trapped), and occur in drafty homes more frequently in the colder months (when warm air escapes from the living area into unconditioned space, and condenses).
