Types of Mold
There are different types of mold. The most common are aspergillus, cladosporium and stachybotrys atra (also known as black mold).
Aspergillus is non toxic to humans but it can aggravate allergy symptoms. It is found on foods and in air conditioning systems.
Cladosporium is non toxic to humans but can aggravate allergy symptoms. This is found as a black or green mold that grows in little dots in bathrooms, on painted surfaces, and in flexible air ducts.
Stachybotrys is commonly called black mold. This should be removed to prevent health issues. Call a trained professional to remove. This type of mold grows on building materials.
To prevent mold growth make sure that water leaks are dried up quickly and humidity levels are maintained in your home or business. Mold thrives in warm damp conditions.
