If you have allergies or a chronic lung disease like asthma, you’re probably very aware of the effect mold can have on your health. But even if you have a healthy immune system and no allergies, mold can cause a variety of health problems — coughing, wheezing, and throat, skin, and eye irritation, to name a few. Mold is everywhere and, though you can’t fully control your exposure to it outdoors or in public spaces, you can check for mold in common places around your home and take measures to prevent and remove it.
Stachybotrys, also known as Black Mold, or Toxic Black mold is a genus of molds and is a filamentous fungi. The most infamous species of Stachybotrys or Black Mold, is the species known as S. Chatarum. It is important to note that while the mold itself is not toxic, it produces mycotoxins that can be very damaging to one’s health in an indoor environment.
