Different-Types-Of-Mold

Learn to identify the different types of mold that can grow inside of homes. Some types of mold are more dangerous than others but it is important to contact a mold removal service regardless of the type of mold that grows in your home.

Aspergillus Mold

Aspergillus mold is very common. This type of mold grows indoors and outdoors and typically appear on old food and inside of AC systems. Breathing in Aspergillus mold is not dangerous, unless you have a weakened immune system or are allergic to mold. You can prevent Aspergillus mold from growing in your home by regularly cleaning out your fridge and by having your AC system serviced. The presence of Aspergillus mold in your home is not a major problem.

Cladosporium Mold

Cladosporium mold typically grows on painted surfaces. You can sometimes find it behind your toilet and in other humid areas in your bathroom. Cladosporium mold is easy to identify since it is dark green or black and often grows in small spots that look like pepper. This type of mold is not toxic and is not a cause for concern. Exposure to cladosporium mold can cause some allergy symptoms to appear such as a sore throat or watery eyes. Large quantities of cladosporium mold can impact the quality of your indoor air. You can get rid of it by using vinegar and prevent it from returning by keeping your bathroom clean and by managing humidity.

Stachybotrys Atra

Stachybotrys Atra is more commonly called black mold and is a cause for concern. This type of mold typically appears when materials rich in cellulose are exposed to humidity. This type of mold can cause poisoning in pets and respiratory problems in humans. Because black mold spreads through airborne spores, it is safer to contact a mold removal service if black mold is present in your home. This type of mold is black and typically grows on walls, ceilings and flooring. It often grows in areas that are dark and humid and might not be easy to access to check for mold.

Black mold is by far the most dangerous type of mold that can be found inside of your home. If you suffer from respiratory problems and other symptoms, it is best to contact a mold inspection service to determine if there is mold in your home and what the best way to remove it would be.
