Article Summary: 

This article discusses the properties of black mold and asbestos, two dangerous air contaminants that can affect structures and their occupants. Both have distinct and substantial health hazards and should be appropriately eliminated. Black mold is a fungus that grows on cellular-rich surfaces, while asbestos is a fibrous material used as insulation. Breathing in asbestos fibers is exceedingly dangerous, causing illnesses such as asbestosis, lung cancer, and mesothelioma. Mold is caused by a variety of factors, including humidity, wetness, and damp darkness, and can only thrive in conditions that occur naturally. Mold existed long before our time and will continue to exist for a long time to come, making it more hazardous to health and wellness than asbestos.
