The Fungi Kingdom is composed of many different organisms. Some of the growths within this kingdom are:
- Shelf fungus
- Smuts (which usually attack plants)
Within the mold category, there are thousands of varieties. Typically, once mold is spotted, you are seeing mold colonies. These colonies are made up of thousands or even millions of microscopic fungi. These individual fungi are best identified through the trained eye of a laboratory technician.
Mold’s main purpose in life is to breakdown, destroy, and spread. All of these qualities make mold a dangerous growth to exist within your home.
Mold spores are everywhere you look. They are a major part of the decaying process in nature. They play a large role in breaking down materials in the ecosystem. Mold thrives in a damp environment where it can best perform the duties it is designed to do. To read more about the composition and function of mold, click here.
