Types of mold

Stachybotrys

Watch for Stachybotrys carefully, especially if your home has excess humidity, water infiltration or has been flooded. Stachybotrys is a type of mold that grows in very humid conditions.

Aspergillus fumigatus

Aspergillus fumigatus is a fungus that grows in humid environments, also on building materials containing cellulose, but is proliferating mainly on organic substrates in indoor environments such as house dust.

Aspergillus flavus

This type of mold is obviously striking because it is filamentous fungi of different sizes and shapes.

Chaetominium

Chaetomium are common types of mold. They are widespread in the soil and on plant matter, when they’re in their decomposition.
