Mold that Provides Life Saving Penicillin can also Grow Indoors Causing Harm
FastMoldRemoval.com, the innovators behind MMR mold stain remover and MPI antimicrobial, reminds the public to be aware of indoor molds.
In 1928, penicillin was discovered by scientist Alexander Fleming. Penicillin is a group of antibiotics derived from a type of mold known as Penicillium. The antibiotics were some of the first drugs that were effective against a number of different types of bacteria that traditionally were responsible for countless deaths.
This same type of mold, that has provided tremendous benefits to society, is also often found in water damaged indoor environments where it can cause health concerns. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), “The most common indoor molds are Cladosporium, Penicillium, Aspergillus and Alternaria.”
There are over 300 species of Penicillium. Many can thrive in low humidity environments which allows them to colonize not only stored food products, but also often grow in indoor environments. Penicillium spores are often present in the air and dust found in indoor environments.
When mold spores settle on places where there is moisture, such as where roofs and windows leak, plumbing failures have occurred, or where there has been flooding, they can begin to grow and multiply. Many building materials provide suitable nutrients that encourage mold to grow. Wet cellulose materials, including paper and paper products, cardboard, ceiling tiles, wood, and wood products, are particularly conducive for the growth of some molds, including Penicillium. Other materials such as dust, paints, wallpaper, insulation materials, drywall, carpet, fabric, and upholstery, commonly support mold growth.
“In addition to causing allergic reactions in many people and potentially acting as an asthma trigger, some Penicillium species also produce mycotoxins,” reported Chris Heller with FastMoldRemoval.com, a leading supplier of mold remediation products. “These toxic secondary metabolites include Ochratoxin, Citrinin and Patulin. Penicillium marneffei is a pathogenic species of Penicillium that has become a growing opportunistic pathogen, particularly for people suffering from AIDS. At FastMoldRemoval.com, we supply a wide range of mold remediation products, applicators and personal protective equipment so that homes and buildings that have Penicillium and other types of mold can be returned to safe conditions for building occupants.”
