Test is Ideal for Humid Spaces Like Basements and Bathrooms: Molds are microscopic fungi that exist almost everywhere. Molds feed off of organic materials and facilitate the decomposition of these materials for use by other plants and animals. To thrive, mold requires only moisture and a food source. Mold can enter your building through open doorways, leaks, the HVAC system, or even clothes. Once mold is in the building and finds a suitable food source, all that is required for a mold colony to start is moisture, typically found in humid space likes basements and bathrooms.
