Yellow fungus causes can range from high humidity to old food, as the primary cause is said to be bad hygiene. Make sure that no food is getting spoilt and is disposed off properly. There should not be any fecal matter and should be cleaned as soon as possible to keep bacteria and fungus from growing.
Humidity in a closed space such as house or office, should not be above the 30-40% range as high moisture environments promote the growth of fungus.
