Common Types of Mold
Mold is everywhere, in nature and in your home. It’s important to identify the mold in your home to understand what it is you are dealing with and how harmful it can be to those in contact with it. Let’s understand the most common types of molds that appear in homes and the places mold typically grows in your home:
The most common allergenic mold; many people experience symptoms such as coughing or wheezing with this mold. Additionally, this mold is dark-colored with hairs growing out of it, often found in bathtubs and underneath sinks.
This grows in thick patches in your home often near air conditioning and HVAC units. Exposure to this mold can commonly lead to lung infection and other respiratory issues. Avoid inhaling this mold or handling it without a professional with proper safety equipment.
Black in color and grows in wet conditions like kitchens, bathrooms, and other areas that are moist. It is typically a good indicator of water damage in a home and can be harmful if exposed to subspecies.
Sometimes referred to as “black mold,” this has a dark color and slimy texture that thrives in humid, damp conditions for long periods of time. This mold can have adverse effects on people in contact with it such as difficulty breathing, headaches, chest pain, and more.
