Fungi/mold: often overlooked as a source of problems in industrial processes
Compared to bacteria, fungi tend to grow slowly and have the ability to grow under damp (low water activity) conditions. They thrive at lower pH and form tough leathery deposits in misted areas and discolored spots on damp surfaces such as painted wood, pulp bales and gypsum board. The biocides used for fungal control often differ from those used to control bacteria.
