The main issue with mold is once it’s identified, you’ve also identified the fact that your home is undergoing a process of accelerated aging. Mold behaves far worse than termites. It will eat all carbon based material in your home (wood, concrete, etc) and weaken the structure. As it does this mold commonly emits toxins into the air which can induce symptoms of mold exposure.
Mold colonies emit these toxins as a way of fighting off other strains of mold or potential predators. This is why if there is a large enough colony in your home, you will usually notice a lot of dead insects, spiders, sometimes even rodents. Mold needs to be handled very carefully. The mere act of touching mold can trigger it to sporulate. You won’t even seed the spores but may be breathing in some volatile organic compounds. Compounds that are well known carcinogens and can have a serious impact on your health. Children and the elderly are especially susceptible due having weak immune systems.
