Stachybotrys aka black mold can grow in homes and be very dangerous if exposed to humans. This toxic mold has a greenish-black coloring and slimy texture due to the wetness on the top. Black mold will usually appear in particularly warm, humid, or damp areas in your home. Toxic black mold needs a lot of moisture, a surface that is very wet for at least a week can be the main spot for black mold to grow. You should always check your home for any leaks inside walls, above ceilings or under floors.
If black mold is in your home, there are some indicators to look out for. Some symptoms include respiratory problems, skin inflammation, hemorrhage, tiredness, and nausea. It’s important not to disturb black mold if you find it inside your home. If you try to remove black mold without any professional help, you could possibly release millions of mycotoxins into the air, contaminating your home.
