What is Black Mould?

Moulds are a type of fungus. There are no sole species defined to be “Black Moulds” as many other types and species can also be black in their appearance. When you hear the scare stories of people talking about deadly toxins released through Black Mould Removal they may be referring to the common species called Stachbotrys chartarum which is identified to form in blackish green spots/clusters in areas of high moisture, warmth and poor ventilation.

The molecules called Mycotoxins can easily become airborne when Black Mould is disturbed and are associated with health problems and even allergic reactions when inhaled, especially with people who may have an underlying sensitivity to them.

It’s important to note that other colours and types of Moulds can also produce Mycotoxins, not just black moulds, however when they grow to reach levels that cause problems with peoples health they have matured considerably
