Different Types Of Mould
Stachybotrys is commonly referred to as ‘black mould’ and is one of the most common and dangerous types of moulds. This usually causes flu-like symptoms, memory loss, headaches and severe respiratory damage. Stachybotrys is dark in colour but can also be found as grey or dark green and is typically found in very damp areas of homes or buildings.
Another common type of mould that is found in homes is Chaetomium, thriving in wet and dark environments such as carpets, wallpaper and baseboards. Chaetomium spores can cause neurological damage as well as other common allergies such as red and watery eyes and trouble breathing.
