Stachybotrys chartarum is the type of mold often called “black mold” or “toxic mold”. Sensational news reports warn about the dangers of black mold and these stories can be alarming and confusing. In fact, the CDC mentions that no existing tests prove an association between black mold and any particular health symptoms.*
However, any mold in your home should be treated with caution – stay out of affected areas and don’t touch or disturb the mold. Our mold remediation specialists at WEDRY Restoration can help restore your property back to safe, habitable conditions.
