Creeping Crud

But no good can come from uninvited mold (aka mildew) indoors, since these microscopic organisms make their living by consuming the surface they're growing upon. It's bad enough when their food source is a little soap scum in your shower, but when it's the cellulose in wallboards or ceiling tiles, or worse yet, in the wooden studs that support them, the resulting property damage can be significant. Even more serious are the potential health effects for your home's occupants.
