Mould is ubiquitous. Mould spores are commonly transported by wind currents and, with every breath a person takes, they will almost certainly inhale a small number of these spores. When spores land on damp/wet organic material (food, wood, paper, furniture, clothing etc) the spores can become immediately active and growth can be visible within 48hrs.
During the mould growth cycle spores are often released, while some mould species are renown for producing toxins.
In a natural open environment, these spores and toxins will often be dispersed by the wind. However, in a closed environment (eg dwelling), these dispersion vectors can be very limited and the concentration of spores and toxins can increase to levels where they can impact a persons health.
