Mould colours? That’s right, mould comes in pretty much every colour of the rainbow…but it’s no pot of gold! No matter what the mould colour is, you don’t want it in your home. Depending on the quantity of mould in your home, it can be a homeowner cleanup. Larger areas will require professional remediation / abatement.
While we often hear of “black mold” (or Stachybotrys) as being the toxic mould, however many other coloured moulds are toxic as well. In fact, mould can get their colour from what they feed upon. Mould needs two things to live: some form of water, moisture, high humidity, condensation as well as organic material to feed on like paper, wood, dirt.
Mould can have severe health & safety issues related to it and because their spores are microscopic you can’t always seem them, but you may be reacting to them. These symptoms can mimic those of a cold / flu. In more severe cases you may have, for example, an allergic reaction or upper respiratory issues.
