Molds are microscopic organisms that live on plant or animal matter. In the natural world, mold aids in the breakdown of dead material and recycle nutrients in the environment. That includes your house, and any of your property that is not immune to toxic mold. This includes things like building materials, drywall, cellulose products, and most cloth. Mold is present virtually everywhere. Different molds can be found growing on organic material such as soil, foods, and plant matter. If you want mold prevention, you have to pay attention.
To reproduce, molds produce spores, which spread through air, water, or by insects. These spores act like seeds and can form new mold growth if the conditions are right. You just want to make sure that the conditions are not right for mold spores to take root in your bathroom, or in fact, in any area of your house. So keep an eye on any leaks, prevent them when you can. If there is a lot of mold that is established in your house, then you need to get your property tested so you have a benchmark for remediation.
