Here at The Twin Plumbers mold remediation department, we have seen the most common types of household molds that are found indoors, such as Cladosporium, Penicillium, Alternaria, and Aspergillus.
The “black mold” is mostly referred as Stachybotrys (also known as Stachybotrys Atra) which is a greenish-black mold that can also be found indoors. Stachybotrys grows on household surfaces that have high cellulose content, such as wood, fiberboard, gypsum board, paper, dust, and lint.
Black molds reproduce by forming tiny spores that are not visible to the naked eye. Mold spores are very hardy and can survive under conditions in which mold cannot grow, such as in dry and harsh environments. These spores travel through outdoor and indoor air. When the mold spores land on a surface where moisture is present, mold can then start to grow.
We have seen here at The Twin Plumbers that black mold grows heavily around hot water heater leaks and hot water line leaks under basements, attics and crawlspaces. We just completed a huge black mold removal project in a condo where it cross contaminated into another unit from a drain line inside a wall.
