What Are The Harmful Effects of Mold Growth?

Harmful effects of mold growth fall into two categories, direct erosion and indirect erosion, as detailed below:
1. Direct erosion of materials.
Non-resistant materials are susceptible to direct erosion because molds can break down materials and use them as their own nutrients, leading directly to deterioration in the physical properties of the equipment.
Two types of non-mildew resistant materials are introduced, "natural materials" and "synthetic materials", such as plant fiber materials (wood, paper, natural fiber fabrics and ropes, etc.), as well as static and plant-based adhesives, oils, oils and many hydrocarbons. Leather shoes are natural materials.
Then, polyvinyl chloride products (products plasticized with fatty acid esters, etc.), plastics with organic filler laminate, paints and varnishes with mold-sensitive components, and certain polyurethane classes (such as polyester and certain polyethers) are all synthetic materials.
2. Indirect erosion of materials. The destruction of mold material is caused by indirect erosion.
A. even if the underlying material is resistant to direct erosion by mold, it is possible to form in the process of manufacture or use. Mold growing on dirt, grease, sweat, or other contaminants deposited on the surface causes damage to the underlying material.
B. metabolic products secreted by molds, such as organic acids, can lead to metal corrosion, glass etching, coloring or degradation of plastics and other materials.
C. Erosion occurs when molds, gas metabolites, grow on materials that are sensitive to direct erosion, come into contact with adjacent anti-mildew materials.
