Stachybotrys Chartarum is often referred to as "Black Mold" or "Toxic Mold". It is a greenish black mold that often appears gelatinous or wet on the surface. This type of mold growth is fairly common in areas of water damage and readily grows on materials with high cellulose content (e.g. fiber board, gypsum board, paper, etc.). An AES Certified Industrial Hygienist can help you to identify moisture or building related problems that may lead to mold issues, assess the magnitude and scope of mold contamination, and/or make recommendations for mold removal. If mold testing is desired, air sampling may be conducted to assess the level of airborne contamination or to investigate hidden mold concerns. Contact us today for advice or services! Learn More
