There are three types of mold that are commonly found in homes, but not all of them are dangerous:
- Aspergillus can be found on foods and air conditioning systems. It's allergenic, but most people can breathe in these mold spores every day without getting sick.
- Cladosporium grows on the back of toilets, painted surfaces and fiberglass air ducts. It's usually black or green. It's also allergenic.
- Stachybotrys atra, also known a black mold, grows when there's moisture from things like water damage, excessive humidity or water leaks. High levels can cause cold-like symptoms, rashes, pink eye and asthma aggravation.
