All molds are parasitic and rely on organic material for food. Mold can break down organic material and finds its food sources in places such as paper, wood, paneling, drywall, and ceiling tiles. Decaying organic backing on carpets, combined with humid air, creates a perfect environment for mold reproduction.  One of the common terms used is "Black Mold" to describe a slimy, black and greenish substance which can result in serious health risks. This well known mold has been closely linked to the death of small infant babies, from respiratory bleeding and illnesses such as asthma and bronchitis. According to the CDC (Center of Disease Control), this mold is responsible for over “100 cases of lung disorders”.  Areas and the different types of substances where black mold can be found include wet soaked wood,  wall paneling, ceiling tiles, cardboard, even items made of cotton.
