Although the presence of any type of mold in your home can be unpleasant, you should be aware that some types require more immediate attention. Rest assured that all mold can be removed safely by a trusted team of mold removal specialists like All Dry. There are, however, some mold types that are difficult to distinguish from one another. If you suspect there may be mold in your home, All Dry recommends that you contact a licensed mold assessor right away before seeking out mold removal services. We at All Dry provide expert mold removal services once your property has been assessed and is deemed in need of mold removal and mold remediation services, no matter what type of mold you are dealing with.
Orange mold usually has a distinct appearance and texture, as opposed to other types of mold. Usually, this type of mold appears slimy and spongy. It usually begins as spots before it fully grows. Although it is generally not considered a serious health threat, it is not completely harmless either. People with a high sensitivity to mold may still experience allergies, coughing, and skin rashes among other symptoms.
Like most molds, white mold often grows in high-moisture environments, such as bathrooms, basements, and leaky walls. It is a mixture of a number of different fungal species. It is characterized by its ability to damage structural integrity and its ability to grow by eating wood as a food source, which is similar to many other molds. This mold can cause infections to the respiratory system, which is why it is most dangerous for asthmatics. It is important to note that white mold can sometimes be mistaken for salt buildup. You can test it by spraying a small amount of water in the area, and if it dissolves, it is a salt buildup and decide whether further action is needed.
Black mold, also known as Stachybotrys chartarum, begins as a greenish-black spot. In the same way as orange mold, black mold needs moisture in order to keep growing, so it is important to detect this spotting in its early stages to ensure it does not become a serious problem. Because of its dependency on moisture, it is more likely to grow in places that have flooded or have leaky pipes because it is a moisture-dependent species. It is found mainly on fiberboard and drywall surfaces.
