Moisture along with an organic material food source provides nourishment and a welcoming environment, creating a thriving atmosphere for hundreds of species. Usually, there is no danger of potential harm. If you see mold forming, you may be able to remove it yourself, if you know how to do it.

Normal indoor temperatures of between 40 and 100 degrees Fahrenheit will breed most varieties. When the temperature is not within this range, the organisms will exist in a dormant state.
A musty smell is a signal of its existence out of this dormant state and is your call to action. It means that the source of the problem must be found and identified. This may not be easy if you cannot see where the problem lies. Often it can be hidden from the naked eye, so be careful! Do not try to fix this problem on your own. The spores can be spread by any unintentional disturbance. The more an area gets contaminated, the more complicated the corrective work will become.
