Usually when a customer asks this question, he/she is referring to Stachybotrys, because that is the particular type of mold that received so much media coverage in the late 90s and 2000s. Although Stachybotrys is black in color, so are many other types of mold. Do not assume that you have Stachybotrys just because the mold is black.

You do not want to discount the importance of the other types of mold that may be listed on your report! Just because you do not see the word(s) Stachybotrys or Black Mold on your report does not mean that there may not be a potentially harmful mold present. Please look up the type of mold detected on your report on our glossary of terms for a better understanding of the type of mold you are dealing with.
