Plants and Mold

It’s ironic that plants filter and clean the atmosphere yet have the capabilities to promote abnormal mold activity within your home. This is as several different types of mold grow well within soil and decaying plant materials. Individuals that may have compromised immune systems and are highly sensitive with a spotless living environment may be unaware that the cause of their abnormal mold symptoms is literally within their safe space and beneath their noses.

Mold Harmful Effects

It is important to be aware that mold spores have the potential to cause hypersensitive pneumonitis, allergenic side effects, and other harmful health concerns. Plants growing in soil will eventually produce decaying flowers and leaves directly into your environment. This may prove harmful for some individuals especially those who have a compromised immune system or undeveloped respiratory system.

Mold Grow well in Household Plants

It’s also important for clients that may require mold air quality testing to keep in mind that the mold air quality test results may be skewed due to the environment created by household plants, flowers, and the soil they are growing in. The majority of the time when completing mold tests and familiarizing yourself with the common types of mold found within your property you may be surprised to see that the description of the mold found states that these specific organisms grow well within soil and decaying plant materials. This makes sense as the purpose of mold is to break down dead and decaying plant materials and provide them as nutrients unto the earth. It’s as if the purpose of mold is to act as the earth’s fertilizer. Examples of mold that grow well within dead and decaying plant materials include Pithomyces, Cladosporium, Botrytis, and Aspergillus Penicillium too name a few.
