Mold Myth Number One

7/5/2019 (Permalink)

There are many common myths about mold. SERVPRO of Ozaukee County can help you sort out what is true and what is not.

Mold Myth Number 1: “Black mold” and “toxic mold” are extremely dangerous.

This is generally false.  Most molds called “black mold” are really very dark green, and are not the Stachybotrys mold that can be associated with health effects.  “Toxic mold” is a misnomer often exaggerated by the media. Only certain mold spores produce toxins and then only under certain circumstances. If the mold spores produce toxins, most likely people would not inhale enough of these spores to get a toxic dose.  Listening to the overly dramatic TV News commentators can scare you about mold. However, it is important to pay attention to your mold situation.  But don't assume you have a serious problem.  If you have any questions or need mold remediation in your house or building,  call SERVPRO of Ozaukee County at 262-242-8888 and we will take care of your problem.
