What is Black Mold?

Black Mold is a name commonly used for Stachybotrys chartarum.  It is one of the most infamous mold because it can grow in houses and affect animals and individuals differently.  

Stachybotrys is known as a toxic mold because it produces toxins called mycotoxins.  SERVPRO of Santa Rosa County and our highly trained technicians can help eliminate your mold issues.  

What Does Black Mold Look Like 

Black mold is a greenish-black gelatinous mold. It is usually slimy because of a wet layer on the top. However if a toxic black mold colony's water source runs out it can appear dry and powdery.

There are several molds that look similar to toxic black mold. If you find what you think might be Stachybotrys the only way you can tell for sure is to have a mold expert look at a sample under a microscope.  SERVPRO of Santa Rosa County will perform an analysis and receive the results quickly within 24-36 hours and can begin remediation immediately!
