What types of mold can grow in your home?

Mold. You’ve probably seen it outside in nature at some point. Maybe you’ve seen it on food in your fridge if you’ve accidentally left it in there too long. (Oops!) Or maybe you’ve seen it somewhere else in your house.

No matter where you find mold, it’s important to stay away from it—and if it’s inside your house, it’s important to call the experts to get rid of it as soon as possible. Mold comes in all shapes, sizes and colors—but it’s never something you should mess with.

Here are the three most common types of mold that can grow in your house—and that you should keep an eye out for.

  1. Aspergillus

Aspergillus mold grows on food and in air conditioning systems. As long as your immune system is healthy, breathing aspergillus in isn’t harmful—but it still shouldn’t be in your house. Aspergillus mold is yellowish green, usually with a gold, red or brown color underneath.

  1. Cladosporium

If you find mold that’s black or green and resembles pepper, that’s cladosporium. It’s commonly found on the back of toilets, on painted surfaces and in fiberglass air ducts. Cladosporium is technically nontoxic, but it can cause allergy symptoms, such as a rash, sore throat or itchy eyes.

  1. Stachybotrys (aka: black mold)

Black mold is found in damp areas that have water damage, especially when the water damage has gone untreated. It can also be found anywhere that condensation has begun—especially on air vents, walls, wood or cardboard.

These are just the three most common molds found in houses. There are actually thousands! The truth is that many molds can easily grow on your home’s floors, ceilings or walls—and many other places. No matter which type of mold you find in your home, it’s important to call the experts to take care of it.
