There are two main types of mold that people are probably referring to when they talk about “toxic” mold. They are the ones that seem to cause most people health problems, although all mold can cause people problems if they are sensitive. You wouldn’t know it, but the more toxic types of mold are actually less common than the usual types of mold that people live with all of the time.
Stachybotrys Chartarum is what people are referring to when they talk about black mold. It is a kind of blackish and greenish fungus that requires a lot of moisture to thrive. It is often found in buildings that have been damaged by floods or hurricanes. There are a few different strains of this mold, only a few of which are extremely toxic, so if you’ve got mold, the chances are, it may be making you feel lousy, but it’s probably not this one.
Aspergillis is a more common type of toxic mold that is not quite as potent as stachbotrys chartarum. Luckily, if you do have a toxic mold, it is more than likely this one.
