Disinfectants have very little effect on these spores as these tiny fungi seeds are an ever-present part of nature’s recycling system. And they fulfill a necessary, vital part in decomposing the organic materials.

The exact number of different mold species is unknown, but scientists estimate that over 100,000 different types of mold microorganisms exist. Statistics from the Center for Disease Control (CDC) in Atlanta report that at least 1,000 species of mold are common in the United States.
