Mold has tiny seeds, called spores, that are always in the air, indoors and outside. The spores are so small, you can't see them without a microscope. Most of the time, the spores land on something dry and nothing happens. They get sucked
up in your vacuum or wiped away when you dust. But if the spores land on something that is wet, they can begin to grow into mold that you can see, and this can happen in as little as two days.

Although you cannot see mold spores because they are too small, once the mold starts to grow, you will notice it. Mold can grow on almost anything, as long as there is a little bit of water for a couple of days. The growing mold can be different colors: white, gray, brown, black, yellow, orange or green. It can be fluffy, hairy, smooth or flat and cracked, like leather. Even if you can't see the mold, you will be able to smell it. Mold can smell very musty, like old books or wet dirt.
