Mold & Mildew Prevention

Mold and Mildew
 
MOLD 2“Molds (and mildew) are fungi. Fungi are neither plant nor animal but, since 1969, have their own kingdom. The fungi kingdom includes such wonderful organisms as the delicious edible mushrooms, the makers of the “miracle drug” penicillin and the yeast that makes our bread rise and our fine wines ferment.  Approximately 100,000 species of fungi have been described and it is estimated that there are at least that many waiting to be discovered. The vast majority of fungi feed on dead or decaying organic matter.”   –Philip Fairey, Subrato Chandra, Neil Moyer; Florida Solar Energy Center
