Different Types of Mold

2/21/2022 (Permalink)

There are different types of mold.  The most common are aspergillus, cladosporium and stachybotrys atra (commonly known as black mold).

Aspergillus is non-toxic to humans but it can aggravate health effects.  It is found on foods and in air conditioning systems.

Cladosporium is non-toxic to humans but can aggravate health effects.  This is found as a black or green mold that grows in little dots in bathrooms or painted surfaces and possibly in flexible air ducts. 

Stachybotrys is commonly called black mold. This type should be removed to prevent health effects.  This type of mold grows on building materials and needs a trained professional like SERVPRO of Boise to be removed. 

To prevent mold growth make sure that water leaks are dried up quickly and properly and humidity levels are maintained in your home or business. Do NOT place a fan.  Mold thrives in warm damp conditions.

Our staff at SERVPRO of Boise provides mold remediation services and are IICRC AMRT (Anti Microbial Remediation Training) certified. This is vital to make sure that services are provided properly. A lack of training and education can be harmful to the structure, occupants as well as our employees.   Protecting the health and safety of all involved while dealing with microbial growth is important.    

SERVPRO of Boise cleans for health and safety first.  It is so important to contain contaminants when performing mold remediation services and cleaning. We work hard every day to make it "Like it never even happened."
