Toxic Black Mold
Black mold is the most dangerous type of mold. This type of toxic mold typically grows after sewage related flood events, but that’s not always the case. It can come into your home and grow like any other mold so it’s important to know how to identify it and what symptoms it causes.
Unlike its name, toxic black mold is not always black. In fact, when it’s wet it’s usually a very dark green color. Dried, it’s much lighter and powdery. Since many other molds look the same, there’s no way to visually determine you have black mold without the help of a small lab and a microscope.
The symptoms of black mold are also similar to any other mold. Allergy type symptoms such as breathing problems, rashes, and nausea are very apparent when toxic black mold is present. Unlike typical molds, toxic black mold also causes damage to organs, bleeding of the lungs, decreased mental ability, and immune system problems. While most of the time it does not cause death, black mold can cause life long problems with damaged lungs and organs. And left alone, it definitely can cause death.
