Did you know there are over 100,000 different types of mold in the world today? Many actually have positive uses, from culinary ingredients to medicinal purposes. With such a huge variety, it’s next to impossible to identify the type of mold in your home by sight alone. You’ll need professional mold testing with a microscope to properly identify the kind of mold that’s present.
While most people don’t want to see any type of mold on the walls of their house, some homeowners may think the darker the color, the more toxic or dangerous the fungus may be. However, color is no reason for panic; the hue has nothing to do with the level of danger. In fact, most common household molds should be removed, but aren’t extremely hazardous.
