What is Mold vs Mildew?

Mold and mildew have many similar characteristics, but they are different types of fungi, and are often different in color and texture. Mold is often black, green, red or blue, yellow in color while mildew is usually gray or white. Mold can be harmful to humans, while mildew presents no serious threat. Neither is in the plant or animal family and both are considered fungi that have enzymes used to break down organisms. They both reproduce by spores. They both become a problem when they start thriving in our homes.

How does Mold Affect Us?

Some people are sensitive to molds. For these people, exposure to molds can cause symptoms such as nasal stuffiness, eye irritation, wheezing, or skin irritation. Some people, such as those with serious allergies to molds, may have more severe reactions. Severe reactions may occur among workers exposed to large amounts of molds in occupational settings, such as farmers working around moldy hay. Severe reactions may include fever and shortness of breath. Some people with chronic lung illnesses, such as obstructive lung disease, may develop mold infections in their lungs.

In 2004 the Institute of Medicine (IOM) found there was sufficient evidence to link indoor exposure to mold with upper respiratory tract symptoms, cough, and wheeze in otherwise healthy people; with asthma symptoms in people with asthma; and with hypersensitivity pneumonitis in individuals susceptible to that immune-mediated condition. The IOM also found limited or suggestive evidence linking indoor mold exposure and respiratory illness in otherwise healthy children. In 2009, the World Health Organization issued additional guidance, the WHO Guidelines for Indoor Air Quality: Dampness and Mold (CDC)
