Paper is constructed from wood pulp, which is an organic feast for mold spores. If your home experiences water damage or high humidity, then your paper files could become damp, putting them at risk of a mold feeding frenzy. Once paper has been contaminated with mold, it can be difficult or impossible to stop permanent damage to your files, so the best option is prevention. Be careful about storing things in damp boxes, attics, or basements, and consider running a dehumidifier in your home office during the muggiest months of the year.
