What is Black Mold?

Black mold, also known as Stachybotrys chartarum, is a toxic mold type characterized by its dark greenish-black color. It flourishes in damp, humid environments and can infiltrate various materials in your home, such as drywall, carpet, or insulation. The mold is notorious for producing mycotoxins, harmful compounds that can affect your health, causing respiratory issues, skin irritation, and other adverse reactions.
