Black Mold

What is Black Mold

Stachybotrys chartarum is a type of mold more widely known as "black mold" or "toxic mold." While there are no questions about the dangers of black mold, the fact is that all mold growth in your home, regardless of color or type, should be treated.

Like all types of mold, black mold feeds on organic materials found throughout your house, such as drywall, carpet, wood subflooring, and insulation. Mold is more commonly found in areas prone to moisture like the basement, bathroom, and attic.
