I have so much confusion around mold and the spores. Are mold spores found everywhere? Like anything from new store bought merchandise to old clothes found at thrift stores?
Also, if something has mold on it and it’s not visible, and touches other clothes, does that mean the other clothes have mold spores on it? Or it doesn’t matter because spores are everywhere regardless?

Lastly, if you can’t see the mold, should you even worry?

I want to understand how it works because there is so much scare with mold and I don’t get it (if it’s everywhere?).

thank you!
