  • Penicillium - This mold most commonly feeds on wallpaper, wallpaper glue, decaying textiles, carpets and fiberglass insulation. It causes hay-fever like reactions and induces asthma attacks.
  • Aspergillus - This is a warm environment mold which thrives both indoors and outdoors. It can be discovered in areas that are excessively damp with extensive water damage, as well as decomposing organic matter. Aspergillus is also found inside of dust and produces mycotoxins.
  • Alternaria - This mold is often located in textiles, dust, carpet, showers, soil and window frames. This large spore mold deposits in the mouth, nose and respiratory tract.
  • Cladosporium - Cladosporium is the highest commonly identified outdoor fungi which enters homes. It grows in damp, porous locations like wood and textiles. The indoor and outdoor kinds bring about asthma attacks and induces hay-fever like reactions.
  • Stachybotrys - Being the least common household mold is lucky, as it is among the more terrible. It needs excessive moisture to grow, and causes breathing problems, flu-like symptoms, loss of hearing and memory, and bleeding in the lungs.
  • Acremonium - This toxic mold grown in areas of condensation like humidifiers, drain pans, window sealants and cooling coils. It's a powdery mold that thrives in a selection of colors like grey, orange, pink and white.
  • Aureobasidium - Aureobasidium is often discovered growing behind wallpaper and painted wood surfaces. It starts out pink or light brown in color then darkens to dark brown-black as it ages. This highly allergic responsive mold causes eye infections and skin rashes.
  • Chaetomium - Chaetomium can be located in homes after flooding or leaking and in chronically wet conditions. It has a musty odor, cottony texture and changes colors from white to brown or grey as it ages. Chaetomium is also known to produce mycotoxins which affect the immune system and cause nail and skin infections.
  • Cladosporium - Cladosporium thrives in both warm and cold areas and moves quickly on upholstery, fabrics, carpets and under floorboards. It has a strong reaction with wet tissues in eyes, nose, mouth and throat.
  • Fusarium - Fusarium is commonly located in a home's soft goods and thrives and moves in cold temperatures. A reddish strain is found in organic products like house plants, and both strains can move quickly through a home. Symptoms from this mold begin as a sore throat, runny eyes and skin infections then can progress to brain abscesses and bone infections.
  • Trichoderma - This is a highly allergic mold with 5 subspecies. It's a rapidly growing mold with a wool like texture that is mostly white and green. It grows in moist and consistently damp locations like HVAC systems, wood and fabric. Along with health symptoms the same as other mycotoxins, this mold also destroys the surfaces it inhabits, causing decay and structures to crumble.
