Molds are commonly found in buildings and homes. They grow in damp or wet places such as around leaks in roofs, windows, or pipes, or where there has been flooding. Molds grow well on organic materials such as paper products, cardboard, ceiling tiles, and wood products. Mold can also grow in dust, paints, wallpaper, insulation, drywall, carpet, fabric, and upholstery.
The most common indoor molds include Cladosporium, Penicillium, and Aspergillus.
