    • Stachybotrys – This particularly horrible mold that produces high levels of airborne toxins, luckily is the least common household mold. Stachybotrys needs excessive moisture to grow, and causes breathing issues, symptoms reminiscent of the flu, loss of hearing and memory, and bleeding in the lungs.

    • Aureobasidium – This mold is often discovered growing behind painted wood surfaces and wallpaper. It begins pink or light brown in color then darkens to dark brown-black the longer it’s around. This highly responsive allergic mold induces eye infections and skin rashes.
    • Chaetomium – Chaetomium can be located in homes after a flood or leaking and in chronically damp conditions. It carries a dank odor, cotton like texture and changes colors from white to grey or brown as it ages. Chaetomium is known to produce mycotoxins that affect the immune system and cause skin and nail infections.
