What is “BLACK MOLD”!? | Separating hype from fact
We’ve heard a lot of people in Kalispell, Whitefish, Columbia Falls and Missoula alike, tell us they found “black mold” in their home. This is usually accompanied by a sense of fear.
A short explanation than of what black mold actually is:
What the Media created a huge scare about was a particular type of mold called Stachybotrys chartarum. This mold is a highly toxic and allergenic mold that has a penchant for thriving inside of a home.
But keep in mind everybody, you cannot tell a mold by its color! Many, many, many molds are black in pigment. Not all are “black mold”. Even Stachybotrys can manifest in other colors such as green.
