- So, what is black mold? Also known as Stachybotrys, black mold is a fungus that is often found in dark, damp spaces in a home or commercial building. Humid conditions and areas full of moisture are more prone to black mold. Because of its color, black mold is easier to identify than other species of molds. As its name hints, this type of mold is a dark black color, different than other types of molds that may present themselves as gray or green in color.
When most homeowners discover black mold in their home, they automatically think it is toxic and a risk to their health. However, the black mold itself is not toxic. There are toxins that it produces called mycotoxins. To complicate matters further, not all molds that look black in color are toxic. So what can you do to better understand the mold in your home? Your best bet is to call a leading company like Home Angels to come to your house and test the mold. If it is black mold, and needs to be removed, we’ll discuss your options with you.
