Mold: it's as old as the Earth and it's everywhere- inside homes and out.  And under the right set of conditions, it can actually start to grow inside your house. Even though the issue of household mold is not new, you may have heard something about it recently in the media. The National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) has prepared consumer information to help you understand what mold is, how it can grow in your home, the routine maintenance procedures you can follow to prevent mold problems, and methods of removing mold already in your home.
