How Do I Identify Mold from Mildew and Yeast?

Identify mold as growing on substrates such as wood, wallboard, ceiling tiles, carpet, wall paper, paneling and leather items. Generally any cellulose or porous material will grow mold under the right conditions.

Mycologists use the term “Mildew” only for fungi that grow on plants. When mycologists say “mildew,” they mean the white growth that causes diseases in plants.

“Yeast” grows naturally on habitats that are rich in carbohydrates. Examples include wet grains (rice, millets, etc), potatoes, fruits, juices, etc.

The ability to identify mold, mildew and yeast in your home is important since certain species of all three are known to pose a threat to human and animal health.

Air Quality Testing in Lawrenceville, GA

Our neighbor had a test done and found out he had radon in his home so we decided to have radon testing done too. We had the team from HealthyAir do an air quality assessment for us as well. They helped us get rid of the radon and they sanitized our air system to take care of all the problems. They were very helpful.
