Black Mold is the name commonly used for stachybotrys chartarum. It is one of the most infamous mold because it can grow in any type of building and affect animals and individuals differently. Nevertheless, not all mold that appears black is the toxic black mold, stachybotrys chartarum.

Stachybotrys is known as a toxic mold because it produces toxins called mycotoxins. SERVPRO of South Brevard and our highly trained technicians can help eliminate your mold issues from your home or commercial building.  

What Does Black Mold Look Like 

Black mold is a greenish-black gelatinous mold. It usually appears slimy, because of a wet layer on the top. However, if the water source that helped produce the toxic black mold drys up, it can look powdery and dry-like.

Do I Have Black Mold?

There are quite of few types of molds that look similar to toxic black mold. The only way anyone can be certain stachybotrys chartarum is present is to have an environmental hygienist come and take air sample, which they will send to a lab. There, they will produce a mold report that will state the exact type of mold and the precise amount of mold spores present.
